Duration   4d

The Silverman Latin American Institute, supported by Lt. David L. Silverman Endowment Fund, will bring together thirty 6th-12th grade educators from Latin America and the United States to study the Holocaust, human rights, and social justice. Working together between a number of countries, participants will be able to create networks that will strengthen educational collaborations.

A selection committee will choose educators who want to learn more about the Holocaust, social justice, human rights, and how to implement this history into curriculum. Those selected will be designated as 2021 Silverman Fellows. Once accepted to this prestigious Fellowship, participants will attend a four–day virtual institute designed to immerse them in historical and pedagogical content. There will be reading requirements before the institute and several tasks to complete during.

The virtual Silverman Latin American Institute will be accessible in English and Spanish by interpretation.

Holocaust Museum Houston is currently only accepting applications from educators who teach in middle or high school: art (visual and music), English/language arts, history, and social studies.

Only those applicants who commit to attending the entire institute will be accepted.

Application and recommendation letters are due Monday, May 3, 2021.
