Full course description

WHAT IS ECHOES & REFLECTIONS?
Echoes & Reflections is the premier source for Holocaust educational materials and dynamic content, empowering teachers and students with the insight needed to question the past and foresight to impact the future.  We partner with educators to support them, foster confidence, and amplify their skills and resources to teach about the Holocaust in a comprehensive and meaningful way.

Session 1: TEACHING THE HOLOCAUST - EMPOWERING STUDENTS
This learning opportunity will prepare you to initiate the important discussions and respond to the toughest questions your students have about the Holocaust.  The why.  The how.

Session 2: JEWISH REFUGEES & THE HOLOCAUST - CONNECTING THE PAST WITH TODAY
As the world struggles with the largest refugee crisis since WWII, Echoes & Reflections’ content can help examine the barriers to immigration and the unwillingness of the free world to accept refugees during the Holocaust.  This timely learning opportunity supports educators to make meaningful connections with their students to similar issues affecting people and nations today.

Session 3: CREATING CONTEXT FOR TEACHING NIGHT
How do we prepare students to read and understand Elie Wiesel’s Night within the
larger historical framework of the Holocaust?  This learning opportunity explores
materials and instructional strategies available in Echoes & Reflections to support effective teaching of the memoir, as well as provides additional background to integrate into instruction.
