Participants from the 2010 Master Teacher Workshop meet a year later to share their testimony-based projects and discuss the progress of piloting them in the classroom.  They also receive continuing education credits.

The USC Shoah Foundation Institute hosted a three-day follow-up workshop for 18 educators who attended the 2010 Master Teacher Workshop, which is the centerpiece of the “Teaching With Testimony” certification program.
