The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is hosting the 6th annual National Seminar for Middle and High School Educators from July 18-24, 2021 in Washington, D.C. (pending COVID-19 gathering restrictions).
The 24-hour professional development program is free to middle school and high school educators interested in teaching about the history of communism and its collectivist legacy. Admission to the program includes all classroom materials.
The seminar blends together scholarly lectures, peer discussions, and pedagogical sessions to carefully balance content and pedagogy. These components are supplemented with short biographical films and in-person testimonials from witnesses and dissidents who resided in communist countries both past and present.
