Music in the Life of President Lincoln

Surviving the Holocaust
Audience: Students in Grades 10-12

The Surviving the Holocaust webcast is now available in the Video on Demand Library at www.fcps.edu/fairfaxnetwork/vod_player/surviving_holocaust.html

Irene Fogel Weiss, a holocaust survivor, shares her story of survival with hundreds of high school students every year. In this program, we listen in on her presentation to Woodson High School students as she shares a personal account of the events that lead to the Holocaust. She discusses her life as a child in Hungary, the changes she witnessed as the Nazis took power, and all manner of degradations imposed on the Jewish people.

Irene describes how her family was ostracized from society and how the Jewish “ghettos” were created. She discusses what her family did and did not know about Nazi practices across Europe and how the deportation of Jews worked. She recounts her arrival at the worst of all Nazi death camps – Auschwitz-Birkenau – and shares historic photos, taken by the Nazis, which capture the very day that her family arrived. She talks about the painful separation from her family and what it was like to be a prisoner at Auschwitz.

After sharing the story of her liberation and rebuilding her life in America, Irene examines the questions of propaganda and humanity that surround the Holocaust. She helps students understand the importance of critical examination of information and comparing sources. She discusses how a basic lack of empathy and humanity toward each other can lead to cruel, and ultimately horrific, behaviors.

 

 

COMMUNITY KEYNOTES: Emotional Intelligence
Audience: Educators & Parents

Community Keynotes: Emotional Intelligence is available for video on demand at www.fcps.edu/fairfaxnetwork/vod_player/keynotes_emotionalintelligence.html

In this program, Dr. Marc Brackett, director of the Yale Center for Emotional Intelligence, describes the theory of emotional intelligence, including how it provides a framework to both measure and study the impact of emotions on important life outcomes. He also discusses an evidence-based approach to social and emotional learning which involves the teaching of emotional intelligence to all stakeholders in schools, including students, teachers, leaders, and families. How social and emotional learning decreases bullying, and enhances school climate, problem-solving skills, empathy, and academic performance is the focus of the discussion.

 

Innovation Workshop: Nanotechnology
Audience: Students in Grades 6-8

The Innovation Workshop: Nanotechnology webcast is available in the free Video on Demand Library at www.fcps.edu/fairfaxnetwork/vod_player/iw_nanotechnology.html.

How small is small? How can nanoscale matter improve our lives? Innovation Workshop: Nanotechnology explores this cutting-edge science and engineering of nanoscale matter. Nanotechnology involves manipulating and controlling matter from one nanometer to 100 nanometers. From airplanes to baseball bats, nanomaterials offer a variety of desirable properties such as strength and conductivity. Graphene and carbon nanotubes are wonder materials made entirely from carbon atoms. Innovation Workshop explores their structure of matter and how engineers can build with these new materials.

Students will learn about moving atoms, electron clouds, and how temperature effects matter from Joseph Stroscio at the National Institute for Standards and Technology. Innovation Workshop student reporter takes students into the National Institute for Standards and Technology’s NanoFab where scientists work in a clean room to build highly structured nanoelectronic circuits. Nanoelectronics is a field of study where researchers are still creating new methods to build.
