Teaching The Children of Willesden Lane with Testimony-based Resources for New York Educators (4th-8th grades)
This program, presented by USC Shoah Foundation and Echoes & Reflections, will prepare 4-8 grade educators participating in the New York Willesden READS program with a unique and flexible approach for teaching this text with students. Teachers will explore key historical events leading up to the Kindertransport - rising antisemitism, Nazism and the Kristallnacht Pogrom - to build professional confidence and awareness. It will also present educational content featuring curated audio-visual testimony from survivors and witness of the Holocaust connected to the themes relevant to Lisa Jura’s story as retold by her daughter, Mona Golabek. The content is designed to foster cognitive skills, music appreciation, digital skills, SEL aptitudes and to broaden student perspective.
