Exploring Sensitive Subjects with Adolescents: Using Media and Technology to Teach about Genocide
Sardone, Nancy B.; Devlin-Scherer, Roberta
American Secondary Education, v43 n2 p4-17 Spr 2015
This paper discusses potential strategies and sources for approaching uncomfortable topics and reviews the challenges facing teachers who choose to do so with the topic of genocide as an example. Using a variety of techniques, including graphic organizers, political cartoons, comic books and graphic novels, films, children's and young adult literature, paintings and photographs, podcasts/audio files, exhibitions, Web Quests, and game-based learning, teachers enable students to develop multiple perspectives about tragic events. A section on reparations and transitional justice suggests some positive ways to conclude such a unit.
