2013 LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE PREPARES TEACHERS TO CONDUCT NEW SATELLITE SEMINARS
On June 22 – 27, 2013, experienced educators from California, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Texas participated in advanced training designed to help them launch Satellite Seminars in their home states. The program, held off-site at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY, included workshops with Sheridan Blau, Distinguished Senior Lecturer at the Teachers College of Columbia University; Karen Shawn, Visiting Associate Professor editor of Prism: An Interdisciplinary Journal for Holocaust Educators at the Azrieli Graduate School, Yeshiva University; and Bjorn Krondorfer, Endowed Professor of Religious Studies and and Director of the Martin-Springer Institute, Northern Arizona University. Participants also spent time in small groups doing hands-on planning and development for their sites. The new Satellite Seminars will be held for the first time in the summer of 2014, and will join our cohort of existing programs in other states.
