Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute for Educators
June 12 -15, 2018
Avrohm I. Wisenberg Multipurpose Learning Center

The Max M. Kaplan Summer Institute for Educators at Holocaust Museum Houston is a four-day program that moves beyond the general history of the Holocaust to explore the various dimensions and implications of the Holocaust and other genocides.

The institute, held each summer, provides substantive content and the opportunity to network with internationally known scholars and teachers from around the world. Working in the Museum’s exhibit space and classrooms, teachers grow in their understanding and refine their skills to teach about the history and lessons of the Holocaust and other genocides. Educator's are introduced and immersed in a range of engaging media and resources. Each year’s schedule includes one or two evening lectures.

The program is directed toward educators on a secondary or higher level, but university students and educators of all levels who have a specific interest in, and background knowledge of, genocide and the Holocaust are invited to apply. Seating is limited and is on a competitive basis. The cost to attend the program is $175, which includes lunch and materials for the four days. See this year's application form for information about early registration discounts.

To ensure a solid grounding in Holocaust knowledge, the Institute begins on Monday June 11, with an optional workshop entitled “Holocaust 101.” This one-day prefix seminar will provide essential historical background on the Holocaust and costs $30.

Applications are due May 1, 2018, Applications can be filled out online or downloaded here: Summer Institute Application

The program will be held in the Avrohm I. Wiesenberg Classroom and in the Museum’s galleries, Morgan Family Center, Holocaust Museum Houston located at 9220 Kirby Dr., Suite 100 Houston, TX 77054..
