The Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers, funded by a generous gift from the Naomi and Martin Warren Family Foundation in Houston, Texas, is developing a corps of pre-service educators who want to learn more about the Holocaust and how to effectively teach about it in their classrooms. The Fellowship was created in 2003 and has more than 400 alumni.
The Warren Fellowship’s main objective is to provide new teachers with the necessary historical and pedagogical tools for teaching about the Holocaust from the onset of their teaching careers. This program will also develop a teacher corps for Holocaust Museum Houston as the Museum continues to expand its educational outreach in Texas and the Southwestern United States.
Upon being named a Warren Fellow, up to eighteen preservice teachers will participate in a six–day, all expense-paid summer institute at the Holocaust Museum Houston in Houston, Texas. This institute is designed to immerse participants in historical and pedagogical issues related to the Holocaust. Holocaust scholars from across the country will provide historical content, and university faculty and museum educators will provide pedagogical context.
While at the Warren Fellowship, participants also develop lesson plans incorporating teaching techniques, historical facts and primary sources from Holocaust Museum Houston’s archives and exhibits for classroom use.
The 2020 Warren Fellowship will take place May 17-23, 2020 and will be held in The Boniuk Center for the Future of Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education and in the galleries at Holocaust Museum Houston, Lester and Sue Smith Campus, located at 5401 Caroline Street Houston, Texas 77004.
This program is generously supported by The Warren Fellowship Endowment Fund, the Naomi and Martin Warren Family Foundation and the Solomon Spector Foundation. We offer special thanks to United Airlines, the official airline of Holocaust Museum Houston.
