The Nevada Study on The Holocaust.
Crawford, Barbara; Metcalf, Sandra
This study series on the Holocaust consists of four units designed for middle school/junior high and senior high students in United States and world history classes. The units may be self-contained or integrated into previous units of study. A 45-minute color video "Nevada Study on The Holocaust" accompanies this guide. The middle school unit focuses on propaganda and its uses in discrimination. The junior high school U.S. history unit provides an overview of discrimination in the United States and Europe in the first half of the 20th century and the Holocaust. The senior high school world history unit studies the rise of Nazism and the Holocaust. The senior high school U.S. history unit expands the study with an in-depth examination of the Holocaust. Resource materials are cited for further study. (EH)
