The Spector/Warren Fellowship for Future Educators

The School of Education, in conjunction with the Spector/Warren Fellowship for Future Educators and the Holocaust Museum Houston, has launched a fellowship program called The Holocaust: Lessons for the Classroom.

The fellowship is designed to help future teachers bring the lessons of the Holocaust into the classroom. The program has openings for 20 School of Education students.

The students will take part in an intensive six-day institute (in January) at the Holocaust Museum Houston in Texas. Through a series of lectures and discussions, nationally recognized Holocaust scholars, university faculty and Holocaust survivors will provide the historical and pedagogical context for understanding the Holocaust and its implications for contemporary society.
