Election Day Professional Development at the Museum of Jewish Heritage
Tuesday, November 5, 2013 from 9:00 AM to 2:30 PM
New York, NY
When the Nazis came to power in Germany in 1933 and began to persecute the Jews, they touched off an international refugee crisis that escalated through the 1930s. Through lecture, as well as the study of artifacts and primary sources, we will explore responses to this crisis.
Tour these exhibitions in the Museum: Against the Odds: American Jews and the Rescue of Europe’s Refugees, 1933-1941; Hava Nagila: A Song for the People; Voices of Liberty; and the Core Exhibition.
Classroom application, as well as alignment with the Common Core State Standards in Reading Information and Reading History, Danielson’s Framework, and the draft New York State Common Core Standards in Social Studies, will be addressed.
Admission for classroom teachers is free, but pre-registration is required. Lunch will be provided to those who register by October 29th and receive a confirmation email from the Museum.
Please register using your complete, accurate school address and school email address. Incomplete information will not be accepted and your registration will be canceled.
Questions about registration should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
