What: The Holocaust Institute for Teacher Educators (HITE) is designed to encourage teacher educators to use the history of the Holocaust as a model for teacher candidates; prepare teacher candidates to teach about the Holocaust in middle and secondary school (6-12) settings; use national and state content standards in teaching about the Holocaust; and consider the ethical implications for classroom teachers in teaching about the Holocaust.
