Summer Institute for Teachers: Fulfilling the Mandate


With the upcoming implementation of Act-70 2014, the Holocaust Center is partnering with the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE), and the Senator John Heinz History Center to help local teachers ensure that they are prepared for this change.

This course will include presentations by representatives of the above mentioned organizations and include giveaways of Holocaust-related materials for teachers to use in their classrooms to help them teach the Holocaust AND adhere to the mandate.

Course is open to any teacher in any grade and/or discipline, as well as interested community members.
