James Scheid's insight:

I would recommend this text for use in other teachers' classrooms as well as mine because there are several educational resources available on the site.  I would use it and recommend other teachers use it to empower students to become involved in educating others on modern day genocides and also to get involved in the prevention of future genocides.

This website presents an overview of the entire Holocaust with specific details on the first days and stages of the Holocaust. This is an excellent source for learning more about the ghettos and implementation of the final solution.

I would recommend this text for use in other teachers' classrooms as well as my mine because as it states above it "provides an overview of the entire Holocaust with specific details on the first  days and stages of the Holocaust".  I would use it and recommend other teachers use it to help students understand the processes that were behind murder on an industrial scale.

USC Shoah Foundation: Video Challenge for Grades 6-12 | ETCJournal.com

USC Shoah Foundation: Video Challenge for Grades 6-12 | ETCJournal.com | Holocaust | Scoop.it

In 1994, Steven Spielberg established the Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation, a nonprofit organization whose original mission was to videotape “the testimonies of 50,000 survivors and other witnesses of the Holocaust from around the world for educational purposes before it was too late.” In the years since then the foundation’s mission has changed from just archiving to establishing educational uses for the materials that are archived. The education department has developed “educational programs and products for classroom use by students of all ages.”

 

This year (2013) is the 20th anniversary of Spielberg’s movie, Schindler’s List, which provided the impetus for the establishment of this foundation. To commemorate this anniversary, an online learning initiative has been set up to engage high school students in a competition that uses IWitness, a website set up for secondary educators and their students. Students participating in IWitness Video Challenge will have access to the 1,300 testimonies available on IWitness and will create their own video-essay.

 

This project seems to offer opportunities for students and teachers to engage in an assignment that would not be as accessible without modern technology. They can view, copy, and create using multimedia tools to develop a video essay that connects the students with the past and the present.

 

To find out more about IWitness Challenge, I contacted Josh Grossberg of the USC Shoah Foundation – The Institute for Visual History and Education.

I would recommend this text for use in other teachers' classrooms as well as my mine because it contains several educational programs that focus on the Holocaust.   I would use it and recommend other teachers especially use the educational program that is focused on building empathy in students-a key component to the study of history.

I attended an outstanding workshop on Holocaust Education sponsored by the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and was introduced to these excellent teaching materials that they have online. The Holocaust can be taught with a goal of making connections with present day prejudice, persecution and crimes of hate that mar this world. Collectively, the geographic legacies of genocide are long-lasting, and must be remembered.  For some local sources for the Holocaust Education and Resource Center in Rhode Island, see: http://hercri.org

James Scheid's insight:

I would recommend this text for use in other teachers' classrooms as well as mine because it informs students of all of the genocides that took place during the 20th Century.  I would use it and recommend other teachers use it to help students connect the genocide of the Holocaust to other historical themes and topics that they will be studying in class.

Remember The Past, Transform The Future

 

James Scheid's insight:

I would recommend this text for use in other teachers' classrooms as well as my mine because it is a locally available learning resource.  I would use it and recommend other teachers use it to make the topic become more real and relatable to their students.  At this museum students would be able to go and listen to survivors accounts in person during days when Holocaust survivors are scheduled to speak.
