These activities have been developed for teachers to use as a guide.
Our intent is to give teachers a framework to follow for use in a
Holocaust unit of study. The philosophy behind these activities is
based on constructivist pedagogy, brain-based learning and the
awareness of the theory of multiple intelligences. We hope teachers
will use them and build on them to fit the needs of students, taking
into account their age, maturity, and ability levels. We strongly urge
teachers to read and reread the Guidelines for Teaching the Holocaust
published by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum before
designing activities or using the ones we offer in A Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust.
The suggestions and cautions the Holocaust Museum offers are important
and invaluable in delivering Holocaust instruction. The sensitivity of
the subject matter requires careful consideration when designing
curriculum and guiding students in presentations and research.
