CURRICULUM: Echoes and Reflections
Whether teaching a full semester of Holocaust studies or including information about the Holocaust in a unit of study about World War II, this curriculum allows teachers to choose as little or as much material as they can cover in a specific time period and still teach the subject matter effectively. Developed primarily for use with high school students, Echoes and Reflections has also been adapted successfully to accommodate both younger and older students. Each interdisciplinary lesson is supported with numerous primary sources including video testimony from witnesses, poems, literature excerpts, maps, photographs, timelines, a glossary, and student handouts. The award-winning curriculum developed by the Anti-Defamation League, the USC Shoah Foundation Institute, and Yad Vashem, includes everything educators need to teach the complex issues of the Holocaust to today’s students.
This curriculum unit consists of 10 lessons beginning with life before the war and Anti-Semitism and taking teachers and students through the Holocaust and ending with the return to life. The unit includes a DVD of over 50, 3-5 minute survivor testimonies that are connected to each individual lesson.
A complimentary copy of the curriculum (worth $100.00) will be given to each teacher in attendance.
This training will be provided by Stephanie McMahon-Kaye, Director of International Seminars in English International School for Holocaust Studies at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, Israel
