In accordance with Act 30, requiring Holocaust and Genocide be taught in grades 5-12, the Nathan and Esther Pelz Holocaust Education Resource Center (HERC) is partnering with the Department of Public Instruction to provide educators with the tools they need. During this one-day session teachers will explore resources from leaders in Holocaust and Genocide Education and get hands on help as they incorporate this history into their curriculum.  

Objectives: Learn the details of the Act 30 mandate; explore frameworks for teaching Holocaust & Genocide Education; discuss methodology.

Participants should bring a laptop or tablet.
