15 Tennessee Educators Return from USSHM

June 4th, 2012

Fifteen teachers from around the state accompanied Executive Director, Danielle Kahane-Kaminsky to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum from June 4th to the 7th. The generous support of the Niswonger Foundation and an anonymous donor allowed us to take teachers from all regions of the state to this seminar experience. The itinerary included two days of professional development for teachers, provided by museum educators, early entry into the museum to view the permanent collection and a tour of the exhibit State of Deception: The Power of Nazi Propaganda. 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 a lesson plan, activity, or student project that can be shared with other teachers.  These instructional materials will be available for future professional development from the Commission.
