|Dear Friends of AHEF,|
You and your colleagues are invited to
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s
ASHES IN THE SNOW Teacher Workshop
Date: Monday, November 25, 2019
Time: 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM (CST)
Location: Harris County Department of Education
Ronald Reagan Building
6300 Irvington Blvd.
Houston, TX 77022
This half-day professional development workshop will help you develop a better understanding of the ideology, history, and effects of communism in the 20th century.
As some today question our nation’s moral, political, and economic underpinnings, your knowledge of communism will help you compare/contrast and defend America’s founding heritage of individual rights, free enterprise, and private property. As American Founder James Madison once said, “The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty.”
This workshop will include a curriculum resource for teachers – Communism: Its Ideology, Its History, Its Legacy. It will be followed by a film screening of Ashes in the Snow (the movie adaptation of the bestselling YA novel Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys on the Baltic deportations in WWII) and a Q&A session.
Boxed lunches will be provided.
Credits: 6 hrs (includes 3 hrs GT credit)
Cost: $0.00 (free admission)
Please register to attend.
The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation is a U.S-based non-profit educational organization. The mission of VOC is to educate this generation and future generations about the ideology, history, and legacy of communism. The foundation was established by an Act of Congress to build a memorial in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the more than 100 million victims of communism.
This notice is posted by the American Heritage Education Foundation in partnership with The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation.
Dear Teachers and Homeschoolers,
AHEF’s new, in-depth, free unit resource is now available to social studies teachers and homeschoolers, The Miracle of America High School Teacher Course Guide.
This resource complements AHEF’s critically-acclaimed Miracle of America text/reference book and guides educators in teaching on America’s founding principles/philosophy and the Bible’s historical influence on those ideas.
The guide may be used for a semester-long special topics course (eligible for state elective credit) or as supplemental units in existing 8th-12th Social Studies, US Government, or US History courses. The guide can be used with any curriculum and also correlates with C3, AP, IB, CC, NCSS, and TEKS objectives. It is supplemental and elective and so does not require (public) school board approval.
The comprehensive guide units may be purchased in a printed tabbed binder or freely downloaded in PDF. Sign up or log in as a member on this site (americanheritage.org) to access the PDFs. Go to AHEF bookstore to purchase the printed guide.
For more information, please go to americanheritage.org/programs/miracle-of-america/.
