WORKSHOPS

Camp survivor Hank Brodt speaks with a North Carolina teacher at a 2010 workshop.

Seven to nine workshops are held throughout the school year at sites across the state. Over 8000 teachers and administrators have attended Council workshops since 1989.

In 2013-2014, workshops were held in Forsyth, Mecklenburg, Person, Randolph, Rowan, Wake, and Watauga counties.

The 2014-2015 workshop schedule will be announced at the beginning of the school year.

For more information and to register for a workshop, contact Lynda Moss, Workshop Coordinator.

  • Present an overview of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust by Holocaust scholar Dr. Karl Schleunes of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, or Dr. Thomas Pegelow Kaplan of Davidson College.

  • Provide to all participants the updated resource guide The Holocaust: A North Carolina Teacher’s Resource , the CD "A Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust" (Florida Council on the Holocaust/Florida Dept. of Education), and a certificate of participation for renewal credit.

  • Are offered across the state at no charge (substitute pay provided), and are open to all North Carolina middle and high school teachers and administrators.

  • Are especially useful for social studies teachers of U.S. history, world civilizations, and the 6th-grade curriculum (Europe and the former Soviet Union); and for language arts teachers who use Holocaust works such as The Diary of Anne Frank, Number the Stars, and Elie Wiesel's Night.
