“We share a commitment to throw light on the still obscured shadows of the Holocaust.”
-- Declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust
The CIC-NFB virtual classroom on Holocaust education, a Canadian initiative focusing on innovative approaches to teaching about the Holocaust, is now live.
This Canadian professional development event offers educators a valuable opportunity to discover new methods in Holocaust education and the many lessons the Holocaust offers on human rights, racism, democratic values, citizenship and genocide.
Designed for professional development of teachers of grades 9–12 and college- or CEGEP-level courses, this Virtual Classroom hosted by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) in partnership with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), will enable educators to interact with Holocaust education experts, view NFB films and access innovative learning resources.
The English webcast is with teacher Scott Masters of Crestwood School in Toronto (winner, CIC Award of Excellence for Holocaust Education) on 27 January, International Holocaust Remembrance Day.
The French webcast is on 4 February with Line Dube and Annie Frenette, teachers at Marie-Clarac Secondary School in Montreal and both honorable mentions in the CIC Award of Excellence for Holocaust Education.
