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.
FALL 2016 WORKSHOPS
Dates and locations of the Fall 2016 workshops will be announced in early September. Contact Audrey Krakovitz, Director of Teacher Workshops, for more information.
(In the 2015-16 school year, workshops were held in Asheville, Chapel Hill, Cullowhee, Greenville, Rocky Mount, and Winston-Salem.)
The one-day workshops:
Present an overview of the Holocaust by Dr. Peter J. Stein, a Holocaust survivor and sociologist at UNC-Chapel Hill.
Provide to all participants selections from the resource guide The Holocaust: A North Carolina Teacher's Resource (full guide available online), a collection of other Holocaust teaching materials, and a certificate of attendance for renewal credit.
Are offered across the state at no charge and are open to all North Carolina middle and high school teachers and administrators. Substitute pay is provided for public school teachers.
Are especially useful for social studies teachers of U.S. history and world civilizations, and for language arts teachers who use Holocaust works such as The Diary of Anne Frank, Number the Stars, and Elie Wiesel's Night.
