Street Addresses Holocaust Teacher Institute

Kori Street, PhD, director of education for USC Shoah Foundation, will deliver a presentation about its IWitness Program at the University of Miami’s 12th annual Holocaust Teacher Summer Institute on June 13, 2013. Street’s talk, “Learning to Use Holocaust Survivor Testimony in the Classroom,” will address the program’s value in teaching eyewitness history, as well as its ability to help build digital literacy. The Holocaust Teacher Institute is sponsored by the University of Miami School of Education & Human Development and the Miami Dade County Public Schools. This year’s conference includes participants from more than 85 public and private schools. Its director, Dr. Miriam Klein Kasselhoff, is a Holocaust survivor whose testimony is one of hundreds that IWitness features.
