Teachers' Guide to the Holocaust.
Nick, Ann L.
The teaching guide is designed to aid high school history and social studies teachers as they develop and implement programs on the Holocaust. The document is presented in four chapters. Chapter I explains that Holocaust refers to the persecution and genocide of Jews and political opponents of the Nazi regime in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. Chapter II presents a rationale for teaching about the Holocaust, outlines objectives, explains how the unit can be integrated into history courses, and suggests parallels of the Jews' experience in Europe with minority groups' experience in the United States. Chapter III provides background information on Germany, Adolph Hitler, anti-Semitism, genocide, and the Nuremberg trials and outlines lessons on anti-Semitism, the extent of the Holocaust, concentration camps, and student reactions to the study of the Holocaust. For each lesson, information is given on activities, concepts, and objectives. Activities involve students in role playing, reading assignments, class discussion, vocabulary definition, and analysis of historical events. Information is also presented on sequencing lessons, assigning readings, viewing films, and arranging guest speakers. The final chapter suggests teaching methods. The document concludes with a bibliography and glossary of terms. (Author/DB)
