SHEPHERDSTOWN — Shepherd University education professor Dr. Jason Allen has been awarded a fellowship to attend the Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators June 1-4 at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
The institute works with university and college education faculty to prepare them to incorporate Holocaust content and pedagogy into methodology classes so education students are better prepared to teach about the Holocaust when they become teachers.
The program focuses on learning Holocaust history, examining U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum education resources, and discussing pedagogical considerations.
“The Shepherd students that I teach are going into secondary education, so they could end up teaching middle or high school, and we spend about two or three weeks talking about teaching very difficult topics,” Allen said.
Allen is one of 24 college professors from across the country who was selected for the institute.
