US Holocaust Memorial Museum Teacher Forum in NC

On August 3-5 at the North Carolina Center for the Advancement of Teaching (NCCAT) in Cullowhee, NC, staff from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (USHMM) is conducting the North Carolina Teacher Forum on Holocaust Education. This workshop brings together many of the most active Holocaust educators at all levels (middle school, high school, post-secondary) and across many different subject areas. The objective is to energize Holocaust education in North Carolina by fueling deeper collaboration and greater innovation. This effort focuses on inventive ways to use the resources of the USHMM in classroom and co-curricular activities.

The benefits of this forum extend beyond the participants and their students. USHMM has set up an ongoing website to share the conversations and outcomes as widely as possible:
NC Teacher Forum Website
The site also contains many links to useful Holocaust education resources and websites.
