Remembering the Holocaust

Posted on April 25, 2011 by Alan Haskvitz
Studying the Holocaust is not just for history classes. It’s also a great opportunity to teach students about bullying, teachable moments and government. These lessons provide free resources that enable educators to create Holocaust lessons in language arts, critical thinking, history, geography and more. I highly recommend you check out the Anne Frank links and the children of the Holocaust sections as they provide a more personal viewpoint of the holocaust that students can relate to.
