Teaching about the Shoah: Project

shoah.jpgA colleague, who teaches history and geography, asked me yesterday if I was willing to work on a Holocaust project with her.

We would share the same class (a group of 30 or so juniors). She’d teach them history and I English. In addition, once a week, and for half the school year, we’d be together with the students and they would work on a project related to the Shoah. Finally we hope to be able to take the class on a day-trip to Auschwitz.

We are presenting the project this afternoon and then again tonight in two different meetings and hope that it will be accepted.
