The one-day symposium will help prepare tomorrow's teachers to educate their students on the Holocaust and Holocaust-related events. Now more than ever, this education needs to take place in the classrooms of Indiana. The program will combine teaching the history of conditions leading up to the Holocaust as well as the horrors of the Holocaust itself. It will also offer a description of successful programs that teachers have utilized in the past several years, along with observations on implementing them in Indiana. The instruction will be provided by a variety of educators who have established track records in Holocaust education, including both university professors and teachers with experience in the classroom.
All university-level students considering going into teaching or already established teachers are encouraged to apply, but the successful candidate ideally will be a senior who has achieved an outstanding academic record, and who is a major in a field relevant to the teaching of the Holocaust or other genocides at the junior high or high school level. In addition, the successful candidate must explain what he or she has done to prepare to enter the teaching profession in Indiana.
We will begin consideration of all applications on 15 Mar 2018 and continue until we have selected all participants. If you have questions about the symposium, please contact Dr. Lee M. Roberts (firstname.lastname@example.org). Although we strongly prefer that you submit your application online, you can print off and submit a hard copy of your application to:
