The seminar for Educators in Jewish Supplemental Programs is an eight day, creative program for educators who teach in Jewish study programs that are NOT their students main schooling experience, (for example, the students attend Public School and the Jewish Supplemental program in the afternoons or weekends). The seminar focuses on helping educators develop the skills needed to create programs and content for Shoah studies that can be used in a variety of settings and time constraints and to deliver those programs in the most compelling way possible. The seminar is historically based, with interdisciplinary approaches to enable the educators to understand the Shoah in its complexity. By using the unique Yad Vashem pedagogical approach to history, modeled lessons, and workshops plus the ongoing collegial interaction during the seminar, participants will be engaged and empowered to create individual Shoah Study programs tailored to their specific supplemental program. Different materials will be presented to those who teach younger pre-Bar or Bat Mitzvah students, and those who are teaching students already in High School.
Included in the topics studied, under the guidance of world famous professors, teachers, and educators are; The History of Antisemitism, The Jewish Community Between the Wars, The Roles of Political and Youth Movements in the Jewish Community of Poland Before and During the War, What is Unique About Nazi Antisemitism?, The Jewish Response to the Rise of Nazism in Germany 1933 -38, The Ghettos, Family Rupture in Ghettos, The Unique Role of Women In the Partisans, Using the Shoah to Understand the Jewish Life Cycle, The Camps, Life After the Holocaust, Educating Without Survivors, and Post Holocaust Theological Responses to the Shoah, Jewish Memory, and Dilemmas and Choices.
We will discuss important pedagogical topics that educators need to consider when developing a Shoah curriculum including; Embedded versus Designated Shoah Studies, Age Appropriate Shoah Studies, and Goals Oriented Shoah Studies.
Topics in Pedagogy include; Safely In Safely Out, The Goal of an Educator, Is There a Place for Simulation in Shoah Studies?, The Use of Dilemmas in Shoah Studies, Creating Empathy as Goal in Shoah Studies.
