Hi everyone, 

I'm wasn't planning to post anything prior to the November conference, but I have heard of a few PD opportunities and resources so I have included them here. 

Other than that, please remember to register for the OHASSTA Conference, Nov. 16 and 17 in Ottawa. 

See you in Ottawa.

Montreal Holocaust Museum Survey

The Montreal Holocaust Museum is looking to organize a seminar during the summer of 2018. This seminar would be for Canadian educators, and would take place in Montreal. Its main objective would be to provide advice and resources for teaching about the Holocaust and human rights.

Right now, they are assessing teachers’ interest in such a seminar and they would be grateful if you could complete the following short survey:
