I use this assignment to introduce a unit on the Holocaust (usually before teaching Night and/or The Book Thief) in an English 2 classroom. You could also use this assignment in a history class.
In this assignment, students are given an aspect of WWII or the Holocaust to research and then teach to the class. This assignment requires presentations to have creative elements as well as audience participation.
Included in this document are two versions of the assignment (one for an Honors class, and the other I've used with CP/regular classes). It also includes a list of 14 topics.
