Join us for a compelling program covering a range of topics related to teaching about the Holocaust. In the morning, Memory Project Productions will present on how to use art to teach about the Holocaust, genocide, empathy, and family connections. Professor Rebecca Kobrin, Columbia University, will lecture on U.S. immigration policy before the Holocaust. Teachers will also hear testimony from a Holocaust survivor.

Select your afternoon program from one of four options:

  • Self-guided tour of the Museum
  • Facilitated tour of the special exhibition In Confidence with a Gallery Educator
  • Guided tour of the Core Exhibition
  • Hands-on workshop Social Justice and Community Building Through Portraits and Stories with Memory Project Productions. Geared toward art educators and liaisons, participants in this workshop will learn a technique to make black and white portraits, prompting students to observe, listen, and interpret as they connect to history and each other. Links with Common Core, the National Art Standards, and NYC’s Blueprint for the Arts will be provided.

Participants will earn CTLE hours. This program is open to active classroom teachers, paraprofessionals, and school administrators.

Election Day Professional Learning is free, but pre-registration is required. Lunch will be provided to teachers who register by October 30.
