Engage students through the use of testimonials of holocaust and genocide survivors as a guide for planning for a better future. Teaching with Testimony provides several activities for middle and high school students that use first-hand testimonies as the starting point for lessons in empathy, injustice, immigration, and more. Download the standards-based lesson plans that include lesson procedures, student handouts, background biographies, and all additional materials related to the lesson.
In the ClassroomBe sure to view these free materials to use as a supplement to your current social studies lessons. These materials also are an excellent way to demonstrate the use of primary sources as a learning tool. As you build supplemental materials to include with these activities, use Padlet, reviewed here, for you and your students to curate online information instead of sharing a list of links. Use Padlet's shelf option to organize your resources by topic. For example, divide your Padlet into sections for biographies, videos, newspapers, and books related to the resource studied. Enhance learning when sharing online articles for students to view together by using Fiskkit, reviewed here, as a collaborative study tool. Fiskkit offers the ability to collaborate by adding highlights, tags and comments on information, and to label information as true or false. As a final project and to extend learning, ask students to use Adobe Spark for Education, reviewed here, to share their projects demonstrating their inspiration for the future. Adobe Spark offers a variety of creation tools, making it easy to provide options for students to choose how to share their learning. Provide students the option to create a video, build a webpage, or create a series of custom graphics as part of a multimedia presentation.
