Glogster: Genocide Around the World

Glod

 

On Wednesday, October 26, 2016, the Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh delivered a pre-service teaching training program to the to the Social Studies and English Language Arts cohorts of the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program at the University of Pittsburgh. The training was designed to give pre-service teachers a better understanding of how to teach the Holocaust, genocide, and human rights violations in the classroom. In response to the training, Dr. Leigh Tanner, an instructor in the Department of Instruction and Learning in the School of Education, had her students create Glogs (or multimedia online posters) about an instance of genocide in the world. A link to their work can be found below.
