Product Description
This project gelled when I realized that every semester that I teach Elie Weisel's Night, at least one student asks very sincerely something to the effect of 'why is it that Jews are so relelentlessly persecuted?'

Such a simple question but with a very complex answer.

This project breaks a class into groups of 10 reasearch teams. Those groups then are assigned one of 10 chronologically arranged instances of anti-Semetism (the earliest dealing with the Greeks, Egyptian, and Romans, the latest dealing with anti-Semetism in the 21st century).

Students then have to present their findings to the class. At the end of this unit, by recognizing the over 2000 year evolution of anti-Semestism, students have a lot more of a historical context for the Holocaust, and a greater depth of compassion for the persecution Jewish people have faced historically, and to this day.

This zip file contains a detailed assignment sheet as well as a rubric for the presentation.

Again, while I used this with a unit on Night, this project could be applied to a history class as well.
