Teachers Develop IWalks in Hungary
Five more IWalks are in development in Hungary by teachers-graduates from USC Shoah Foundation’s Teaching with Testimony in the 21st Century professional development program--a two-year program in Hungary, Poland, Ukraine, and Czech Republic that introduces local educators to teaching with testimony from the Visual History Archive.
Amanda Gin, Chloe Voss and Laurie Williamson
Guided by their teacher, Amanda and Chloe designed a project for the IWitness Video Challenge to help foster children in their community. Their video, “Nobody Forgotten,” took 2nd place in the national competition, landing them a $1,000 scholarship.
