Education professor, Holocaust survivor offer curriculum class for teachers

May 19, 2009

Since 1978, Eva Kor has taught thousands of young people about the Holocaust and changed many lives. Now, she will offer her Holocaust teaching philosophy to K-12 educators in a course at Indiana State University.

Kor is a survivor of the Auschwitz-Birkenau German Nazi Concentration and Extermination Camp and was instrumental in gaining passage of an Indiana law requiring Holocaust education in secondary schools.

Kevin Bolinger, professor of elementary education at Indiana State and a board member of the CANDLES Holocaust Museum in Terre Haute, will team up with Kor to teach curriculum and lesson plans for grades K-12 in conjunction with new Holocaust education standards.

The course, ELED 595A for elementary school teachers and CIMT 595 for middle and high school teachers, will meet from June 8 through July 9. Class time is Monday through Thursday, from 9:30-11:30 a.m. Participants can earn undergraduate, graduate, and continuing education credits. Registration is limited to 25 participants.
