Our Strategies / Pedagogy For Educators
Teaching a multifaceted subject, such as the Holocaust, requires responsibility, acute sensitivity, and sense of awareness. Our lessons can help educators navigate this complex topic with materials which are an effective compliment to any standards-based World War II curriculum.
ZHC offers a variety of methods to introduce the curriculum including:
This format uses an atomistic approach to the topic, utilizing Ben Lesser’s accounts, as a way to teach the subject as a whole. Therefore, his individual experiences and perspective offers a complete and broad representation of the Holocaust.
In addition, Bloom’s Taxonomy Models (cognitive, affective, and sensory) and Webb’s Depth of Knowledge Levels (acquired knowledge, knowledge application, analysis, and augmentation) were utilized in this curriculum for student engagement.
Numerous common core and state standards in Social Studies and English/Language Arts will be met through this curriculum.
