Sullivan studies the Holocaust as a Warren Fellow
Clinical Assistant Professor Caroline Sullivan is representing the College of Education & Human Development as a Warren Fellow at the Houston Holocaust Museum May 19-24, 2014.
The Warren Fellowship for Future Teachers is an annual program designed to bring together university students and faculty preparing for teaching careers for an in-depth look at the Holocaust and other genocides, according to the fellowship’s website.
This week, Sullivan and other fellows are discussing how to effectively teach about genocide and have had the opportunity to meet and talk to survivors of the Holocaust – an important part of the program that gives educators another level of understanding about this part of history.
“It is an honor to meet and talk with survivors, especially Ms. Naomi Warren, one of our sponsors for whom the Naomi and Martin Warren Fellowship Fund and Foundation is named,” Sullivan said. “I deeply appreciate the opportunity to work with eminent Holocaust, museum, history, and education scholars, as well as authors and artists to better understand Holocaust and genocide education and its implications for students and teachers in schools.”
