“The ultimate job of a teacher is to make connections to your students with the curriculum. … You want them to get something out of it that’s not just the facts. You want them to walk away with a personal sense of responsibility. Echoes and Reflections helps me do that.”
Social Studies Teacher
Echoes and Reflections delivers value to both experienced Holocaust educators who are supplementing their curricula and for teachers new to Holocaust education.
