The Summer 2009 Teacher Training workshops have been announced for

Courses run from 9:00 am to 3:30 pm.

1. The Holocaust, Genocide & Hate Groups
Throughout history, various groups of people have been stereotyped, oppressed, tortured, driven from their communities or annihilated.  This course will explore what we learn from history and apply it to analyze the types of hatred and hate groups that are becoming increasingly popular among youth today.
*Recommended for Educators of Grades 6-12

2.  Classroom Management: Nurturing a Culture of Achievement
Managing your class is like putting together a puzzle.  You need all the parts to fit together to help your students succeed.  What preparations do highly effective teachers make to assure smooth running of their classroom?  Practical tools and innovative techniques will be provided by a veteran educator who has guided new teachers as well as those with decades of experience.  Learn strategies to support the development of your classroom community to boost confidence and resolve conflicts. Share proactive strategies for effective classroom management in our increasingly smaller world.
*Recommended for Educators of Grades K-12
