Free Holocaust Workshop

Free, one-day workshop for which substitute pay is provided, on Holocaust Education given by The North Carolina Council on the Holocaust (we are a part of DPI). Teachers also receive CEU credits (6 contact hours) for attending. Held at Corriher Lipe Middle School, 214 W. Rice Street, Landis, NC, on April 21, 2015. This promises to be a wonderful workshop that features our Holocaust Scholar, Dr. Peter Stein, and Holocaust Survivor, Dr. Zev Harel. If you are interested in this opportunity for the teachers of Iredell-Statesville County, I have attached a form/announcement so that teachers might apply to attend. Teachers can email me directly either individually or collectively. Lynda Moss moss.lyndam@gmail.com

Great resource: Life and Math - click here. “It’s only one of eight Common Core Standards for Mathematical Practice, but we can change schools and change lives if we truly implement Mathematical Practice 3: http://goo.gl/wOVUQk “Construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others.”
