The participants for the 2011 Master Teacher Workshop were chosen from a pool of over 90 applicants.
The Master Teacher Program is the cornerstone of the Teacher Innovation Network. The goal of the program is to build a cohort of educators in Southern California and across the United States and train them on the methodology for integrating testimony into classroom projects, creating original testimony-based lessons, and sharing these resources with colleagues. In Summer 2012, the Institute will conduct a “best practices” workshop with graduates from the first three years of the program. Graduates are ambassadors of the program, with expertise on the intersection between Holocaust and genocide education and digital literacy.
