Testimonials

"The Rutgers MTI program offers educators an in-depth approach to studying historical content while emphasizing best practices in teaching history to students today. Educators leave this program with a deeper understanding of the Holocaust through exposure to scholars who are actively engaged in research and they value offering their research to educators currently in the classroom. Finally, the Rutgers MTI enables participants to educate their students to be critical consumers of content."

What participants say about the MTI:

“The teaching of tolerance must be made a priority if our learning community’s cultural diversity is to remain one of our strengths.”
