Teaching “The Children of Willesden Lane” with Testimony-Based Resources

Wednesday, Jan 20 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

Join USC Shoah Foundation, Echoes & Reflections, and the Holocaust Memorial Resource & Education Center of Florida to learn about our resources for teaching The Children of Willesden Lane books.

This professional development will present a unique, meaningful, and flexible approach to teaching The Children of Willesden Lane books. To prepare teachers to teach the historical context, the session will provide a historical overview of the events leading up to the Kindertransport — rising antisemitism, Nazism, and the Kristallnacht Pogrom— to build professional confidence and awareness. It will also present educational content featuring curated audio-visual testimony from survivors and witnesses of the Holocaust connected to the themes and topics relevant to Lisa Jura’s story as retold by her daughter, Mona Golabek. The content is designed to foster cognitive skills, music appreciation, digital skills, SEL aptitudes and to broaden student perspective.

Teachers (K-12) who join this professional development webinar will:

* Deepen their understanding of the historical context of The Children of Willesden Lane books
* Explore testimony-based digital resources, for teachers and students, connected to the biographical narrative
* Learn how to incorporate the aligned resources into the curriculum
* Learn how to request a classroom set of the book most appropriate for their grade level
* Receive a certificate of completion that may be used to document in-service credit
