Middle and high school teachers are invited to join KET for Echoes and Reflections, a special professional development program focusing on the Holocaust on Tuesday, June 24 from 9 a.m. to noon ET at the KET studios in Lexington. The program:

  • promotes an interdisciplinary approach to teaching about the Holocaust to today’s students
  • addresses academic standards, including the Kentucky Core Academic Standards, using informational texts and primary source documents
  • incorporates compelling visual history testimony into ten multi-part and modular lessons to engage students in the lives of survivors, rescuers, liberators, and other witnesses of the Holocaust
  • combines the experience and resources of three world leaders in education: the Anti-Defamation League, USC Shoah Foundation, and Yad Vashem

These facilitator-led programs model active and collaborative learning as participants explore the Echoes and Reflections Teacher’s Resource Guide, including the visual history testimony from the USC Shoah Foundations Visual History Archive incorporated into each lesson. Participants leave programs equipped with a complimentary copy of the Teacher’s Resource Guide, replete with effective teaching strategies, primary source materials, and connections to academic standards.
