Location Zoom
Date Tue, May 23, 3:00pm - 4:00pm
Duration   1h

Antisemitism is surging: a dangerous hatred that is being fueled with powerful words, conspiracy theories, and pernicious beliefs about Jews. It is important that educators have the resources and tools to feel prepared to talk about contemporary manifestations of antisemitism, including when it happens in their own schools. Utilizing recent data of hate crimes and antisemitic incidents from the FBI and ADL respectively, and research conducted by ADL about antisemitic beliefs held by Americans, this learning opportunity will provide vital information paired with effective classroom strategies to help students understand the threatening state of antisemitism. By using the pedagogical approach of Echoes & Reflections and examining antisemitism in the past and at this moment, participants will learn the critical lessons of the past and inspire students to reject and counter the rising threat of antisemitism today.

This webinar connects with Lesson Plan Unit 11 on the Echoes & Reflections website.
