United States Holocaust Memorial Museum For Teachers and Educators

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum promotes the responsible teaching of the Holocaust through a variety of programs to help the nation’s educators increase their knowledge of Holocaust history and implement sound teaching strategies. The annual Arthur and Rochelle Belfer Conference for Teachers attracts up to 200 middle and secondary teachers from around the United States each year. In addition, the Education Division offers workshops and conferences in Washington, D.C. and in local communities throughout the country, as well as an on-line workshop. Skilled secondary school teachers can participate in the Museum Teacher Fellowship Program and join a national corps of educators who serve as leaders in Holocaust education in their schools, communities, and professional organizations. The Regional Education Corps (REC), a group of master teachers drawn from the Museum Teacher Fellowship Program, assists the Museum in implementing educational programming on a national level.

The Museum also supports a study tour to Germany, Poland, and Israel for secondary school educators. The Holocaust and Jewish Resistance Teacher Program is co-sponsored by the American Federation of Teachers, the Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors, and the Jewish Labor Committee.

ONLINE WORKSHOP

This online workshop includes video segments from a workshop presented in Baltimore, Maryland. The guidelines and methodological suggestions in these video segments are at the core of every teacher workshop and conference presented by the Museum. They are offered here for teachers who are unable to attend a professional development program presented by the Museum in Washington, DC. In addition to video of the actual workshop session, segments include historical and artifact photographs, text, and links to related sites within the Museum’s Web site.

Delaware Art Museum 1.JPG
2301 Kentmere Parkway, Wilmington, DE, United States 99.76 mi

It might seem that an institution like a museum is carved in stone, but since its founding in 1912, the Delaware Art Museum has actually changed a great deal. Our Centennial Timeline, installed in the Museum’s Orientation Hallway, is a look at how things were and how they have changed, both here at the Museum and in the community that we serve. To put the Museum’s historical achievements in context, the Timeline mirrors notable Museum milestones with important local and world events.

A century ago, the Museum started life with an original purchase of approximately 100 Howard Pyle paintings. That collection has grown to include 12,000 works of art by great American masters such as Winslow Homer, artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, and well-known American illustrators. The Museum’s name and physical space have also changed considerably. Originally called the Wilmington Society of the Fine Arts, and then the Delaware Art Center, the Museum officially became the Delaware Art Museum in the early 1970s. And although we spent decades traveling around—with no permanent gallery space—the Museum now encompasses 80,000 square feet of exhibition and administrative space, four studio art classrooms, and a sprawling 9-acre sculpture park—the first of its kind in the region.

[showhide type="links" more_text="Educator Workshops and Development- Click for More Information" less_text="Hide Information"]
