Teaching the Whole Story: Examining the Shoah in Intermediate German Language Courses
Rubin-McGregor, Jordan; Rubin, Beth
Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German, v51 n1 p31-52 Spr 2018
This article addresses how to include instruction about the Holocaust (Shoah) in intermediate German world language classes in the United States. Scholarly inquiry into teaching of the Shoah has produced pedagogical frameworks, and Lindquist's (2008) guidelines are recommended along with additional instructional resources and suggestions. The appropriateness and value of teaching the Shoah are described by means of a series of detailed activities that can be used in intermediate classes. These activities integrate the development of language skills with effective instruction in the Shoah and include a timeline activity, supplemental guidance for analysis of the book "Damals war es Friedrich," and an analysis of propaganda posters from the period. Finally, a call is made for the development of additional resources to support instruction of the Shoah in the German language curriculum.
