Are you ready to evolve your approach to teaching American Jewish history? Join the National Educators Institute’s 2024 Speaker Series for a transformative professional development experience. Participants will expand their understanding and teaching of American Jewish experiences and connect with fellow Jewish educators.

You will learn from today’s leading scholars and discuss, with fellow educators, how to approach hard topics in your classrooms using inquiry-based approaches and primary source materials. Each session includes a scholar presentation from scholars listed below, followed by a 30-minute session with our program co-directors discussing practical applications in your educational setting. The Institute focuses on methods that increase students’ ability to interpret primary sources, encourage rich dialogues, and build empathy, including the Museum’s innovative curriculum, OpenBook: Discovering American Jewish History Through Objects.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to explore and connect with scholars and peers to inspire the next generation!
