Classrooms Without Borders is calling for lesson plans from educators that will aid their communities in the struggle against hate, racism and anti-Semitism.
CWB intends to build an online repository of thematic units, complete with model lesson plans, prepared by teachers from middle schools and high schools throughout the country, to help mark the one-year anniversary of the Tree of Life shooting next fall. Any teacher from public, charter, independent or parochial schools may submit a lesson plan and supporting unit.
The lesson plans should relate to the Tree of Life shooting.
First-, second- and third-place awards will be granted for both middle and high school lesson plans.
The educators who submit the best lesson plan will win a full scholarship for a Classrooms Without Borders travel seminar. Second place educators will win a $1,000 grant toward travel expenses or registration costs for a seminar with a focus on racism, antisemitism, the Holocaust or Israel. Third place educators will win a $200 book stipend.
All winning proposals will be presented at the Antisemitism, Hate and Social Responsibility conference in Pittsburgh November 10-11, 2019.
