This workshop will introduce participants to a unique, project-based learning opportunity from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum that engages students in primary source research and promotes historical thinking. The project invites learners to investigate how their local newspapers covered Holocaust-related events during the 1930s and 1940s.

The workshop takes place on Friday, Jan. 25 at the Holocaust Resource Center at Kean University in Room 201/207, 1000 Morris Ave., Union, N.J. The program runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with a light lunch provided. Professional development credit is available for educators.

Frank Stebbins, an NJEA member and history teacher at Arthur L. Johnson High School in Clark, and Eric Schmalz, the community manager of History Unfolded at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, will facilitate the program.

Preregistration is required by Jan. 11. For more information and to register, contact Dr. Adara Goldberg at agoldber@kean.edu or 908-737-4633.
