Moving History Forward: Perspectives on the Holocaust
HEDX 9010A & HEDX 9010B

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 a Holocaust curriculum that examines intersections between memory spoken and heard, between the past and the future, between listening to oral testimony from the Holocaust and creating a work of art that integrates perspectives from speaker and listener.  By reading scholarly articles on the Holocaust and preparing students for the 2014 Chapman University Holocaust Art and Writing Contest, participating teachers will create a curriculum based on the theme Memories Spoken and Heard: Intersecting Perspectives on the Holocaust. Teachers will implement this curriculum in their classrooms and, through Blackboard discussions, share their understanding of major concepts and how these impacted their classroom experiences.

 Participants will:

  • Explore the role of the memory and witness in history, specifically the history of the Holocaust.
  • Design a Holocaust curriculum based on the theme Memories Spoken and Heard: Intersecting Perspectives on the Holocaust.
  • Implement curriculum in their classrooms.
  • Submit three pieces of student work (art, film, and/or writing) to the 15th Annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest.
  • Receive two professional development credits upon completion of the seminar.
