Have you ever wondered how to connect Core Content Standards in English Language Arts and Social Studies with 21st Century Life & Career Standards like Critical Thinking & Problem Solving and Communication Media & Fluency while meeting the NJ State Mandate on Holocaust/Genocide Education?
Look no further!  This is the workshop for you!
Christopher Zarr, Education Specialist at the National Archives in New York City as our keynote speaker!  Not sure what the National Archives in NYC has to do with NJ Teaching?  Not only have they partnered with the NJDOE to link thousands of their documents to the 2009 NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards for Social Studies, they have also just released the awesome 21st Century Technology Tool DocsTeach that allows you to bring primary sources into the classroom through the latest in Web 2.0 technology!
