On a snowy, windy night last week, Dr. Sondra Perl, Lehman College and Gradate Center, CUNY, NY and five National Writing Project teachers from the Rural Sites Network joined us to describe their journeys as teachers of Holocaust studies. These are the teachers who you'll hear on this podcast:
Kristi Bancroft Boucher, Oxford Hills High School, Maine
Gail Desler, Elk Grove School District, California
Ilka Hanselmann, Wind Gap Middle School, Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania
Susan Hodgin, Moscow Senior High School, Idaho
Larry Neuberger, Miller High School, Springfield, Missouri
We took a look at their experiences in 10-day seminars that Dr. Perl led this summer and last summer. We learned more about how these teachers have integrated teaching about the Holocaust into their work with students. Perhaps you will be inspired by these teachers to begin your own journey into studying and teaching about the Holocaust.
...to provide a forum for faculty interested in studying and teaching the Holocaust. The Network extends the work of the summer seminars sponsored by the Memorial Library. Located at Lehman College of the City University of New York, HEN uses an inquiry-based approach to focus on how educators can engage students with difficult material and how writing and dialogue can help move students from shock and denial to empathy and action. We look to support educators from middle schools, high schools, colleges, and universities in the following ways:
By examining teaching practices both critically and generously;
By sharing resources and devising new approaches in workshops and in online forums;
By inviting noted scholars and researchers to present new work to the group; and
By developing and conducting workshops in teachers' own schools and communities.
