The Stefi Altman Seminar for Educators: “Is it true? Using Fiction and Nonfiction Sources to Teach about the Holocaust and Genocide”
×

Do you use the same book or the same author each time you teach about the Holocaust? Want to learn how to expand the literary offerings in your teaching? This one-day workshop on Friday, Nov. 14 is for you. This workshop will focus on school-age appropriate fiction and non-fiction resources for grades three through 12, including how to incorporate them into the classroom for all development levels. From the inclusion of diaries and memoirs to the use of poetry and historical fiction, participants will consider the pedagogical best practices in teaching about the Holocaust and other genocides. Participants will engage in a rich examination of picture books and graphic novels and also be actively involved in using strategies to incorporate in teaching about the Holocaust. All participants will leave with classroom with new materials to use and new ideas on teaching about the Holocaust and other genocides. This program will meet the TEKS requirements for both English/Language Arts and Social Studies teachers in grades three through 12. Art and music educators who wish to incorporate Holocaust-based literature in their studies also may wish to consider attending. This program is supported by the Fund for Educators, in honor of Stefi Altman. This workshop has been approved by the Texas Association for the Gifted and Talented for six hours in Creativity and Instructional Strategies. The fee for this program is $20 per person, which includes workshop materials but not lunch. Registration is limited to 40 teachers. To register, visit www.hmh.org or e-mail teachertraining@hmh.org.
