I further understand that by applying I am committing to intensive and extensive learning prior to the symposium (materials provided by the symposium) and extensive follow-up support by the symposium leadership to help ensure a smooth interdisciplinary program culminating in a school-wide accessible Holocaust Remembrance event in late Spring 2021. Finally, I understand that by applying and completing the program, I am agreeing to be the Holocaust Interdisciplinary team lead providing guidance and support to my fellow teachers at my school to be able to infuse and teach the Holocaust in an interdisciplinary, meaningful, and age appropriate way with confidence and passion for at least 5 years.
