Ackerman Center 2016 Teacher Workshop
Accessories to Murder: Collaboration and Theft During the Holocaust

We invite you to participate in this Teacher Institute which offers 16 hours of Continuing Education credit and is being provided to educators in the greater Dallas area FREE of charge thanks to a generous endowment to the Ackerman Center.

Accessories to Murder: Collaboration and Theft During the Holocaust, presented by the UT Dallas Ackerman Center for Holocaust Studies, is a comprehensive, two day exploration into curricular approaches for teaching World War II and the Holocaust. Bringing together experts in the field, this unique learning experience affords teachers the opportunity to gain innovative classroom tools and skills for teaching the topic through the Humanities, Art, English, Geography, Government, History, Social Sciences, and Social Studies. In addition, it provides a unique opportunity to interface with area teachers who are currently implementing these strategies in their classrooms. Sessions will focus on key historical issues relating to the history of anti-Semitism, critical nineteenth and twentieth-century thought leading up to the Nazi takeover, and the seminal events of the war. Teachers will be provided with a selection of seminars pertaining to their field including the use of multi-media, film, and database resources.
