2018 Holocaust Educator of the Year Nick Haberman will lead this training around creating an emotionally honest classroom. Educators will discuss best practices for developing a safe space to talk about Holocaust history and the connections to the difficult and necessary topics that 2020 has introduced into the conversation. Teachers will brainstorm ways to use this space to cultivate leadership opportunities for students, and Nick will introduce examples of his own from his work leading the Light Education Initiative. Part of the session will also build on the previous teacher training on using survivor testimony, thinking about best practices for ensuring students respect the experience and narratives of Holocaust survivors as they view it through their own lens.
