I understand that many of you outside the state will have no way of attending this event but it seems like such a great opportunity, I’m gonna share it anyway!
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Wichita State University are working together to host a free workshop entitled Teaching about the Holocaust: A Workshop for Teachers on September 25, 2010. The workshop will be held at the WSU Metroplex, 5015 E. 29th St. North, Room 180 Wichita, Kansas from 9:00 – 4:30.
The free workshop is designed for middle and high school teachers. Participants will receive books, teaching resources, and six hours of continuing education credits. Teachers can also earn one graduate credit by enrolling through Wichita State University.
Everything that I have ever used from the USHMM has been phenomonal. This is a don’t miss opportunity that you need to advantage of. Register online and download the PDF flyer. If you have questions, contact:
