Engage with Echoes and Reflections Online – March 2016
- Webinar – March 3rd and March 10th, 2016, Echoes and Reflections will offer a two-part “Introduction to Echoes Webinar” to introduce educators to a sound pedagogy and best practices for teaching about the Holocaust. Designed for those educators NEW to Echoes and Reflections, the webinar focuses on one particular lesson in the Teacher’s Resource Guide and the supporting multimedia components, including visual history testimonies and IWitness.
- Online Professional Development Program – From March 7 – March 27, 2016, Echoes and Reflections will also be offering our new, comprehensive, fully online, 6-hour professional development program: Teaching about the Holocaust. Released over three weeks, participants are supported by an instructor, and invited to proceed at their own pace, while enjoying interaction with other educators. Upon completion, educators will receive a certificate of completion, a copy of the Echoes and Reflections Teacher’s Resource Guide, and join a network of educators teaching about the Holocaust and genocide.
In a recent blog, Pennsylvania educator Keith Long shared, “In my twenty-four years of teaching, this was easily one of the most meaningful professional development experiences I’ve ever had.”
- IWitness Chat – March 9, 2016, Echoes and Reflections will host an #IWitnessChat, highlighting the intersections between visual history testimony and three of the ten Echoes and Reflections lessons. Join the conversation at 7pm EST.
