Basic information about the workshops:
- Workshops typically begin promptly at 8:00 AM.
- Workshops typically conclude at 3:30 PM each day, but may end as late as 4 PM. Workshops usually conclude with a Holocaust survivor speaker or child of a Holocaust survivor speaker.
- You will receive a certificate of completion for renewal .6 renewal credits. You must attend the entire workshop and complete the online evaluation tool to receive renewal credits.
- Many of our workshops now offer a companion Canvas course for an additional .4 digital literacy credit. Information about these courses will be provided on the individual workshop pages.
- To save costs, we ask that you print your own handouts from the workshop materials and agendas page on this site.
Information about Substitute Reimbursement:
- Pay will be provided for public and charter school teacher substitutes, at rates established by the NC Department of Public Instruction.
- There is no substitute code for the Teacher Workshops on the Holocaust.
- Attending teachers must sign a substitute reimbursement form at the workshop for his/her county. This form is returned to the Council and forwarded to DPI for processing. Reimbursement is via NC DPI Allotment revisions for PRC 003, not checks.
What to do before arriving at a workshop:
- fully charge a laptop or tablet to bring with you to the workshop
- print the essential handouts for the workshop (located on the workshop materials and agendas page)
- If you have not already seen, it watch The Path to Nazi Genocide from the USHMM (see below for embedded video) so you have the needed background knowledge.
- If you do not already know about the USHMM Guidelines for Teaching the Holocaust, watch the presentation from USHMM Museum Teacher Fellow Laurie Schaefer below.
- We would love to have you join our Facebook group, Holocaust Educators of North Carolina to continue to network and learn about new information in the field of Holocaust education.
