Event description

Description

Join us on June 8 for a day of professional learning focused on Jewish Resistance During the Holocaust. In the morning, Museum of Jewish Heritage Archivist and Curator Bonnie Gurewitsch will lecture about Jewish Resistance, followed by Holocaust survivor testimony. After lunch, teachers have the option of selecting one afternoon session of their choice.

This day of professional learning is free, but pre-registration is required by June 2. Registration is limited to active classroom teachers only. Please provide your complete school information when registering. Lunch will be provided to all teachers.


Afternoon Workshops:

1. Tactics of Resistance

The Jewish Partisan Educational Foundation’s (JPEF) specialized lesson expands students’ critical thinking about the spectrum of possible responses to genocide and other forms of aggression - from non-violent to the armed resistance of the partisans. Educators will be given pedagogic tools and insights into teaching about Jewish resistance during the Holocaust using lesson plans. study guides, films and biographical video testimonies and sketches. All materials, including JPEF’s Resistance Matrix, are designed to promote classroom discussion and empower sound decision making among students. (Please note that because of the length of this workshop, you will be asked to go directly to this session after the morning session ends. Lunch will be served to you in this room instead of in the Events Hall on the second floor.)

2. Resources for Teaching About the Holocaust

3. Guided Tour

A Museum-trained Gallery Educator will lead you through highlights of our Core Exhibition.
