Teacher Testimonials
"The (Eva Educational) toolkit really helps teachers design engaging lessons and activities, supported with best instructional practice, around the powerful themes of Eva's story. Just as importantly, teachers use it to create meaningful and authentic conversations about these themes that are student-centered. That makes this toolkit so unique, blending excellent curriculum support with a powerful guide map for connecting the profound meaning of Eva's story of students' lives." - Eric Heagy, Indianapolis Public Schools Curriculum and Instruction Social Studies and World Language Coach; "Provided our students an opportunity to engage in meaningful conversation that I hope will motivate them to think differently, with compassion and hope, and channel that into their actions not only during their time with us, but when they return to the greater society." - Chris DeHart High School History Teacher and Pendleton Juvenile Correctional Facilityt
