How do we help students understand that antisemitism did not begin nor end with the Holocaust? What do students need to know in order to recognize antisemitism today and to stand up to antisemitism and other forms of hate?
This learning opportunity explores classroom materials to support effective teaching of contemporary antisemitism, its global reach, and its expression in the form of hate speech, violence, denial and distortion of the Holocaust.
Through this program, educators will:
1. Define contemporary manifestations of antisemitism, both different and the same as traditional forms of antisemitism present before and during the Holocaust;
2. Discover and utilize classroom lessons and resources to help students explore the persistence and impact of antisemitism worldwide;
3. Explore ways to support students' ability to recognize and actively to respond and prevent antisemitism and other forms of prejudice; and
4. Build confidence and capacity to teach this subject.
This session will be held at Arkansas Educational Television Network (AETN) Conway, Arkansas and facilitate by Kayla Fletcher.
