Professor Davis joins 50 professors from across the US on the 2011 Echoes and Reflections Professors’ Study Tour to Israel
SED Professor Dan Davis, Ph.D. will be one of 50 professors from colleges and universities from across the United States participating in the 2011 Echoes and Reflections Professors’ Study Tour to Israel. Echoes and Reflections is dedicated to developing curriculum for educators to teach the complex issues of the Holocaust to today’s students.
The group of professors departing in January will be accompanied by staff from ADL and the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, and participate in a twelve-day program of study at Yad Vashem learning about the Holocaust and identifying meaningful ways to bring Echoes and Reflections to college students.
The 12 day seminar on the Holocaust will explore topics such as issues and perspectives in Holocaust research in various countries, with leading historians on the implications of their work; and How does an interdisciplinary approach in an age-appropriate manner when teaching the Holocaust allow educators and students to gain a broader understanding about this complex subject.
Echoes and Reflectionsis the result of an unprecedented partnership among three leaders in education: the Anti-Defamation League, the USC Shoah Foundation Institute for Visual History and Education, and Yad Vashem. To learn more about Echoes and Reflections, click here.
