Holocaust and Genocide Education Advisory Committee Spring Webinar Series
The Connecticut Department of Education and Voices of Hope are co-sponsoring a webinar series on the Teaching of Genocide in the Secondary School Classroom. This four-part webinar series will provide teachers with both content knowledge and ideas/suggestions on how to teach specific genocides and genocide in general. For each session we will have a scholar talking about essential themes relating to the genocide they are discussing for approximately 25 minutes. After that, experienced classroom teachers that teach about genocide in their classrooms will discuss approaches and resources that can be utilized to teach this important subject. All webinars will be from 4:00-5:00 P.M.
