Long Description
This comprehensive teacher's guide is designed to accompany the Holocaust Remembrance Series for Young Readers. It explores major themes: identity - community - rights - responsibilities - the power to choose - how our choices are influenced - the effects our choices have on the world around us. Highly adaptable and easily integrated into existing classroom programming, it is made up of five separate sections that include full lesson plans with handouts to help teachers in the areas of language arts, the arts, social and character education. The flexible design allows the material to be easily applied to other case histories or texts (i.e. Rwanda, Civil Rights Movement or local community social justice concerns.) Teachers can begin at any point in the guide, moving backward or forward through the resource as their students' needs and time constraints dictate. The material is also appropriate for adaptation in intermediate and senior level classrooms.Shawntelle Nesbitt , a former grade six teacher, is passionate about designing educational programs that address issues of identity, community, human rights, and social justice, using the Holocaust as a case study. She lives in Ontario.
