Washington State Council for Social Studies (WSCSS) Fall Conference | October 13, 2018 | Lincoln High School, Tacoma | Register Now!  

Join educators from around Washington for a day of exploring resources, lessons, and inspiration on the theme of: A New Frontier for Social Studies: Taking Action. As part of the conference, the Holocaust Center for Humanity will be introducing the NEW online Encyclopedia of Washington State Holocaust Survivors. Participants of this session will be some of the first to engage with this new resource. Through hands-on exploration of the Encyclopedia's videos, images, and other primary sources, teachers will participate in an activity that can easily be replicated and scaffolded in the classroom.

The Encyclopedia provides rich content and videos that will spark discussion, challenge students to think critically and to consider the difference each one of us can make. If possible, but not at all required, participants should bring a device with wifi or 4G capabilities.
