Teaching Empathy and Media Literacy through Primary Sources – Indianapolis

Media literacy skills have become essential for young people to successfully navigate and critically assess the ever-increasing amount of information they receive throughout their day – on social media, advertisements, television, and film. Therefore, it is crucial for students to comprehend and identify how media, both historically and in contemporary society, can be used as a tool to incite hate and violence against certain groups. This learning opportunity examines the events of the Holocaust through the lens of media, by examining propaganda deployed by the Nazis to discriminate against Jews and other minorities. Educators will gain the tools to facilitate classroom discussions on the role and impact of Nazi propaganda during the Holocaust and support their students to critically analyze media in today’s world.  

Through presentations and hands-on activities, educators will also walk away with lesson plans and resources to ‘Do History’ in their classrooms and make connections to Auschwitz survivor, Eva Kor as we take a look at the exhibit Eva Kor From Auschwitz to Indiana 

Registration is free of charge. Participants of this workshop are eligible for 6 hours of PGP points as well as a $40 stipend Amazon gift card. Lunch will be provided. The workshop is geared toward high school educators but can be adapted for all grades.
