THE HOLOCAUST, TESTIMONY, AND SOCIAL EMOTIONAL LEARNING
Our webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
Teaching about the Holocaust through the use of testimonies moves lessons beyond facts, dates, and statistics. It builds students' social-emotional capacities. The power of personal narrative is inherent in stories of survival and bearing witness to history. And yet, the stories are relatable and foster empathetic thinking. Testimony cultivates students’ ability to be introspective and intentional, connecting them through their own understanding of what it means to be human.
Join us in this webinar to learn how the testimony in each Echoes & Reflections unit can help develop social-emotional learning (SEL).
