The Holocaust and Genocide: A Search for Conscience. A Curriculum Guide.
Flaim, Richard F., Ed.; Reynolds, Edwin W., Jr., Ed.
Designed to facilitate teacher development of a secondary unit on the Holocaust and genocide, this multidisciplinary curriculum guide provides a wide variety of classroom-tested objectives, learning activities, and materials. The guide is organized into six units which may be taught in sequence or used in part as supplementary materials: the Nature of Human Behavior, Views of Prejudice and Genocide, the Rise of Nazism in Germany, From Persecution to Mass Murder, Resistance and Intervention, and Issues of Conscience and Moral Responsibility. For each unit, an overview precedes a list of terminal and performance objectives, a glossary, and list of activities. The latter consists of a three-column chart which matches performance objectives with learning activities, materials, and commentary. All reading materials listed are tagged to appropriate reading level: below average, average, and above average difficulty. Appendices consist of a bibliography, list of audiovisual materials and distributors, three newspaper feature stories about the Holocaust, and the table of contents for the student anthology related to this curriculum guide.
