Looking for rigorous and engaging lessons that will help your students understand why they should learn about the Holocaust and other genocides?
This 3-5 day unit covers bullying, hate crime, and genocide by exploring a TED Talk, famous quotes, a poem, an essay by Elie Wiesel, an opinion piece, and a study done on Holocaust knowledge and awareness.
Students will start their unit on Night, The Diary of Anne Frank, or genocide with curated texts that will get them thinking, discussing, analyzing, and shifting their perspectives.
The unit ends with an in-class argument essay which will help students to synthesize the texts when they formulate their own ideas based on the evidence.
