The answer to a busy summer – Holocaust Education Online

In Education, Holocaust, Home, Teacher Workshops, Uncategorized by Amanda DeBrunLeave a Comment

For teachers, summer is a time to take a deep breath and relax. We schedule trips to the pool, the beach, the mountains, or wherever our spirits find refreshment. Spur of the moment adventures include excited children – or not! Stacks of summer reads lie scattered around the house. Some will be finished, others will not. Such is the way of summer break – scheduled but flexible.

Thankfully, Holocaust and human rights education fits right into all of this thanks to online learning. From one-time webinars to entire online courses, the variety and availability is amazing.
