Drawn from Memory and the Writing Process: School Program
(Writing/research/literature/history, 7th-12th grade) - This program covers my writing process for Drawn from Memory, covering the conception of the idea, the research resources required, how much to outline, the pitfalls of drafting, and the types of editing needed to have a polished finished product. Students learning to write essays/papers, to do extensive research, and to read books critically will get a lot out of this program.
Drawn from Memory and the Writing Process: Author/Educational event
This program is the same as above, but geared to a more adult audience (or a combination of teens and adults.)
Drawn from Memory and Lessons from the Holocaust: School Program
(History, sociology, psychology, social justice, 7th-12th grade) - Ninety-Nine percent of Danish Jews survived the Holocaust despite Nazi occupation. Other nations lost 50-80% of their Jewish populations. What was the historical context in Denmark? What can we learn from those Danes today about how to protect people in our community?

The Drawn from Memory Anti-Bullying Program: School Program
(Anti-Bullying, 7th-12th grade) This program uses the historical story of the Danish rescue of the Jews (as featured in the novel Drawn from Memory) as a jumping off point to discuss combating bullying in school. Concepts like the empathy gap, the diffusion of responsiblity, and the Milgram experiments are used to explain why Denmark rescued 99% of their Jewish population while other countries murdered millions. These ideas are applied to the culture of schools to better understand why bullying happens and what we all can do to stop it.
