Instructional Procedures


See preface material from 'Anne Frank in the World, 1929 - 1945 Teacher Workbook.'

Have students use their library skills to research information about the Holocaust or a current example of prejudice. They can use books, encyclopedias, magazines and newspapers from the appropriate time period. Each student should choose a specific aspect of the Holocaust and write articles, editorials (include questions for thought), and letters to the editor. The class can then come together and create a 'newspaper' or news magazine that can then be used for future classes as a learning tool.
