AFT Connecticut is joining faith organizations and the state education department (SDE) in co-sponsoring this no-cost professional development opportunity for PreK-12 teachers. The purpose is to help facilitate implementing the Connecticut Holocaust and Genocide Education and Awareness Act (PA 18-24) of 2018 in classrooms across the state.
 
The Jewish Federation Association of Connecticut (JFACT) has collaborated with SDE to provide instruction in the ITEACH program's IWitness website. The platform provides students a unique primary source that connects learners with contextualized first-person views of history through multimedia activities.
 
Lunch will be served. 
 
Note: participants are requested to bring laptops and headphones.
