Remembering the Holocaust.
Keller, Michelle
Few events in history have had as far-reaching an effect on people's lives as the Holocaust. To stop the devastating cycle of hatred and prejudice, prevention needs to start in the classroom. Through education, teachers can bring light upon the horrible practices that took place in the past. In this curriculum unit intended for use in grades 6 through 8, students will read from a variety of primary and secondary sources that will broaden their view. The unit pairs the classic work, "Anne Frank: Diary of a Young Girl" with two young adult novels: "Night" and "I Have Lived a Thousand Years: Growing Up in the Holocaust." The three books offer different perspectives of lives lived during the Holocaust. The curriculum unit is divided into the following parts: I. Rationale; II. Objectives; III. Motivations (true/false quiz; examine food; KWL mobiles; quick writes; challenging questions; guided imagery; Holocaust pictures); IV. Pre-reading Activities (read survivor stories; anticipation guides; "The Colors of Us," Karen Katz; prejudice and discrimination; primary vs. secondary sources; jigsaw; activity centers; propaganda); V. During Reading (journal questions for "Anne Frank"; character graphic organizer; literature circles ("Night" and "I Have Lived a Thousand Years"); VI. After Reading (literature circle activities; "Anne Frank"); VII. Study Guide Questions; VIII. Discussion Questions; IX. Vocabulary; X. Assessment (quizzes; unit test); XI. Books and Materials; and XII. Adaptations. (NKA)
