Spector/Warren Fellows head to Houston, blog about experience at Holocaust Museum

The School of Education announces its seventh class of Spector/Warren Fellows, who will be traveling to Houston for a six-day learning intensive Jan. 6-13.

The Spector/Warren Fellowship for Future Educators was launched in 2008 in conjunction with the School of Education and the Holocaust Museum Houston and is designed to help future teachers bring the lessons of the Holocaust into the classroom.

Each year, 20 students are selected from a competitive and diverse pool of applicants to take part in an intensive six-day institute at the Holocaust Museum Houston. Through a series of lectures and discussions, nationally recognized Holocaust scholars, university faculty and Holocaust survivors provide the historical and pedagogical context for understanding the Holocaust and its implications for contemporary society.
