To maximize the learning experience available through our DVD, website and other materials, we turned to three of the leading experts in the fields of multidisciplinary and museum education: Audrey Korelstein, Scott Winterrowd, and Daniel Rulli. Working together, these award-winning educators have drawn on their complementary backgrounds to create a comprehensive curriculum and set of supporting instructional tools that combine art history, history, cultural anthropology, geography, and other disciplines to create a unique view of World War II.
Audrey Korelstein is an independent education consultant who develops inventive social sciences curricula. Her work draws from a background in anthropology and archaeology, as well as years of teaching learners of all ages. Audrey produces educational materials for a range of topics and designs multidisciplinary learning initiatives that link identity and culture. In addition, Audrey is a specialist in Jewish education and creates childhood and family programming in New York.
She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia University, magna cum laude, and a Master of Arts from The City University of New York, Hunter College (Anthropology and Archaeology). She was a Lipsey Scholar, a scholarship recipient from the Jewish Foundation for Education of Women, and she was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa.
