Kentucky Historical Society offering professional learning workshops


The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is offering three professional learning workshops for teachers in the coming months:

  • “Kentucky Economy,” KHS’ winter teachers workshop scheduled for Feb. 18, will provide information on the history of hemp, coal and other industries in Kentucky and provide teachers with tools to teach these topics in their classrooms.
  • Two Holocaust education workshops April 12-13 will feature a trainer from Echoes & Reflections who will guide middle school and high school educators through strategies that will help them teach about the Holocaust in a comprehensive and meaningful way:
    • “Teaching the Holocaust, Empowering Students” on April 12 will give educators the tools to teach this important story accurately and confidently.
    • “Connecting the Past with Today: Jewish Refugees and the Holocaust” on April 13 will examine the biggest refugee crisis since the Holocaust, examining the barriers to immigration and making connections between the past and the present.

There is a fee for the February workshop; the April workshops are free. Visit KHS’ website for more information or to register.
