Dear Friends of AHEF,

You and your colleagues are invited to

The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation’s
ASHES IN THE SNOW Teacher Workshop
(Houston area)

Date: Monday, November 25, 2019
Time: 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM (CST)  
Location: Harris County Department of Education
Ronald Reagan Building
6300 Irvington Blvd.
Houston, TX 77022
Room 100A-C    

This half-day professional development workshop will help you develop a better understanding of the ideology, history, and effects of communism in the 20th century.

As some today question our nation’s moral, political, and economic underpinnings, your knowledge of communism will help you compare/contrast and defend America’s founding heritage of individual rights, free enterprise, and private property. As American Founder James Madison once said, “The advancement and diffusion of knowledge is the only guardian of true liberty.”  

This workshop will include a curriculum resource for teachers – Communism: Its Ideology, Its History, Its Legacy. It will be followed by a film screening of Ashes in the Snow (the movie adaptation of the bestselling YA novel Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys on the Baltic deportations in WWII) and a Q&A session.

Boxed lunches will be provided.    

Credits: 6 hrs (includes 3 hrs GT credit)  
Cost: $0.00 (free admission)  
Please register to attend.
