Featured Resource: Museum of Jewish Heritage Holocaust Curriculum
The Museum’s Holocaust Curriculum is an educational resource representing an unprecedented expansion of our mission to educate students about Jewish life before, during, and after the Holocaust. Developed by the Museum with the support of the NYC Department of Education, the Museum of Jewish Heritage Holocaust Curriculum is an innovative teaching resource featuring free lesson plans accessible through our Meilman Virtual Classroom, primary sources, and other resources for middle and high school students and their educators.
Our curriculum incorporates best classroom practices and draws on artifacts from our Museum collection. Our Standards are aligned to the Common Core, as well as the New York City Scope and Sequence for Social Studies and NYS Next Generation Learning Standards.
