Webinar: Teaching the Holocaust through Primary Sources; Curation Decisions
Tuesday, May 7, 2019
7:00pm ET / 4:00pm PT
As history and social studies educators, we often face the challenge of how to engage in the study of difficult histories with our students. We are consumed with thoughts about what historical knowledge is both cognitively and developmentally appropriate for our students. Although best practice in the field of Holocaust studies maintains that primary sources should be a central component of any study of the Holocaust, research demonstrates that most high school history and social studies teachers feel unprepared to teach the subject both in regards to historical content, and curation of primary sources. This session will provide an overview of issues related to the curation of primary sources in the teaching of the Holocaust, and will also focus on the ways in which the study of the Holocaust, when constructed appropriately, has the potential to broaden students' experience with historical thinking skills such as historical agency and historical empathy.
