Join us for this special professional-development event, taking place on January 27 (English session) and February 4 (French session). This Virtual Classroom will provide teachers of Grades 9–12 and college/CEGEP-level courses an opportunity to interact with Holocaust education experts, and discover new pedagogical approaches to the Holocaust and its lessons on human rights, racism, democratic values, citizenship and genocide. Participants will also receive a free resource package from The Azrieli Foundation’s Holocaust Survivor Memoirs Program, including Holocaust survivor memoirs, a DVD and sample lesson materials. This event is being jointly hosted by the National Film Board of Canada (NFB) in partnership with Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), and will feature Scott Masters - winner of CIC’s 2013 Award for Excellence in Holocaust Education (January 27); and Line Dubé and Annie Frenette, finalists for the 2013 Award for Excellence in Holocaust Education (February 4).
A fun path to learning
The teachers’ section offers you games and resources to teach citizenship, immigration and multiculturalism subjects. Assign a game to students as part of a lesson or use one of the teaching ideas to make learning more fun.
You may also want to send a link to this section to your colleague, so that they too can take advantage of these fun learning tools.
