This channel will contain some video lectures I record while I am in Israel this summer. I will be there for 5 weeks. The first week I will be conducting personal research and study of the archives, exhibits, artifacts, visual material and all else related to the study of the Holocaust. The following week I will be attending the International Holocaust Educator's Conference, also held at Yad Vashem. The next three weeks I will be sitting in on a teacher training seminar at the International School for Holocaust Education with Holocaust educators from other English speaking countries, most from the USA. I have already graduated this particular course as well as an advanced course that was once offered to the graduates. So why am I here again. Well simply that was 6 years ago. New research, new knowledge, new teaching strategies are always emerging in the very complex world of Holocaust Education. Everyone should be a student for life and keep up on their craft as much as possible. Just as I read and study about my other teaching area of Reading skills by following research, pedagogy and how they evolve, so must I do that in this area. That does not in any way diminish the importance of Reading and my passion for students to learn the most in BOTH disciplines. The area of Developmental Education is one that also evolves and that is why I have other Vimeo channels devoted to videos where I teach those skills to my precious students via the Internet.
Thanks for listening to my rant. My passion for each area is shown in different ways and is evident when one physically observes my teaching of both in the classroom.
