Application Deadline: June 10th Teachers receive: ~ Classroom ready resources ~ Echoes & Reflections curriculum ($100 value) ~ Professional development points ~ Breakfast & lunch each day
An invitation to all current teachers, public or private, of grades 5 – 12, who teach in Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry or Lee Counties. Teachers outside these counties will be considered if space allows.
Please join us this summer to explore World War II and the Caribbean.
Participants will gain knowledge of basic Holocaust history and pedagogy through the “Echoes and Reflections” curriculum created by the Anti-Defamation League, The USC Shoah Foundation: The Institute for Visual History and Education, and Yad Vashem. The specific focus this summer will be the Caribbean countries of the Dominican Republic and Trinidad & Tobago.
The Museum will be hosting two exhibits this summer that will serve as resources for the workshop:
Sosua, The Dominican Republic: A Refuge from the Holocaust in the Tropics
Calypso: Singing the News of the Day
Participating teachers will view the events of WWII and the Holocaust not only though the rescue story of Sosua, but also through the lens of traditional Calypso music that chronicled the international news between 1938 – 1940.
