ADL’s national partnership with USC Shoah Foundation and Yad Vashem, Echoes & Reflections, provides educators with professional development and educational materials to introduce students to the complex themes of the Holocaust and to understand its lasting effect on the world. The program offers:
- A range of on-site and online professional development programs for teachers; all programs provide access to a variety of classroom-ready content, sound teaching pedagogy, and instructional strategies.
- Content that is aligned with educational standards, integrates primary and secondary sources such as documents, visual history testimony, artwork, and poetry, and connects to topics learned in other school subjects.
- Teaching tools that equip educators to support students to reflect and think critically about how the Holocaust influences the social issues unfolding in the world today.
