  Refugees, Genocide, and Democratic Norms: Teaching about the Holocaust in an American Context
    What does it mean to be an American, and what should be America's role in the world? These questions
    are as old as the Republic. They are revisited by each generation, especially in times of crisis. Join staff
     from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum for a virtual tour and discussion about how an exploration of
    Americans and the Holocaust can help students analyze and evaluate longstanding national arguments
    about America's commitment to democratic norms, immigration and refugees, and genocide prevention.

     Through a virtual tour of the special exhibition, Americans and the Holocaust, historian and curator, Dr.
       Daniel Greene provides an overview of the history, themes, and artifacts on display. After the tour,
   educators from the Museum will discuss resources and methodology to address compelling questions and

The Henry Ford Museum

                      Journey to Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation

     Be transported to Dearborn, Michigan on the campus of The Henry Ford. A globally recognized
destination that fosters inspiration and learning from hands-on encounters with artifacts, representing the
  most comprehensive collection anywhere focusing on innovation, ingenuity, and resourcefulness in

 You’ll be accompanied by two members of The Henry Ford’s Learning & Engagement team to virtually
explore The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. Together we’ll examine the stories behind six
  must-see artifacts like Buckminster Fuller’s last surviving Dymaxion House prototype and the bus in
   which Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat. Expect to gain a new perspective for how material
   culture provides insight into the habits that innovators use to identify and solve problems as well
         as how innovation informs the interconnectedness of technological and social change.

                                   The Idea of Mattering is Essential

        To spark the inspiration for meaningful education, the idea of mattering is essential in that
   educators must matter enough to themselves, to their students, and to our communities to inform
     with a spirit of justice and equity. Schools should not avoid discussions about racism, sexism,
   and other uncomfortable realities in the classroom, particularly social ills that students witness in
    their daily lives and are impactful to them. A meaningful education that challenges and inspires
   students to be courageous in matters of justice and equity benefits our society and community. It
     is through an authentic exploration of the social behavior of the past, that we discover that we
         matter to ourselves and others. In this experience, we will explore methods to approach
    meaningful discussions in the classroom to incite critical thinking, effective communication, and
    greater understanding of social realties through stories rooted in the Underground Railroad era.
