Through Discovery to Action: Making Meaning from Memory
HEDX 9011A & HEDX 9011B

This is a two-part seminar-style professional development opportunity taken over the fall and spring semesters. The seminar provides educators with a foundation for creating a Holocaust curriculum with direct connections to the Common Core Standards.

This course is designed to provide educators with a foundation for creating age-appropriate Holocaust curricula that examines the relationship between discovery and action within the context of Holocaust history. Educators will engage students through the use of oral testimony from the Holocaust and will encourage students to make meaning from memory by creating a work of art that integrates perspectives from speaker and listener.

Reading scholarly articles on the Holocaust and Holocaust education, and preparing students for the 2015 Chapman University Holocaust Art and Writing Contest, participating teachers will create a curriculum based on the theme Through Discovery to Action: Making Meaning from Memory.  Teachers will implement this curriculum in their classrooms and, through Blackboard discussions, share their understanding of major concepts and how these lessons impacted their classroom experiences.

 Participants will:

  • Review age-appropriate resources and techniques for creating age-appropriate lessons focused on the Holocaust as a topic.
  • Explore the relationship between discovery and action in history, specifically the history of the Holocaust.
  • Design a Holocaust curriculum based on the theme Through Discovery to Action: Making Meaning from Memory.
  • Implement curriculum in their grades 6 -12 classrooms.
  • Submit three pieces of student work (art, film, and/or writing) to the 16th Annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest.
