THC Takes Teachers to Washington D.C.

June 9th, 2011

Washinton D.C. 2011 Seminar 

Seven teachers from around the
state accompanied Danielle Kahane-Kaminsky and Dr. Paul Fleming on a three day trip to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum from June 7th to the 9th. The generous support of Ms. Lilian Kittower and the Niswonger Foundation allowed us to take teachers from all regions of the state for this seminar experience. The itinerary included a full day of professional development for teachers provided by museum  educators and a half day workshop to familiarize teachers with primary sources related to Holocaust Education. Teachers were able to enjoy a bit of sightseeing in the D.C. area and a good time was had by all. Participating teachers will be required to develop and share written mini-lessons and activities for future professional development to be utilized by the Commission.
