Gradual Change in Nazi Germany

Gradual Change in Nazi Germany

A powerpoint, worsearch, timeline, video and youtube video about how Nazi Germany gradually slid into more and more extreme versions of anti-semitism. It chronicles the dates of some of the 2000 laws passed against Jews in the years following Hitler's election in 1933, and attempts to answer the question HOW did normal people allow, and participate, in the Holocaust. It attempts to answer this to help students understand how vigilance in any society, and the trends within it, are something any healthy citizen should take part in. The Key Learning Question is: How did the Holocaust happen? Activities are differentiated, and extension activities are included. Resources suited for yr.6 (10yo) and up.

The Holocaust: The Ghettos

The Holocaust: The Ghettos

This lesson combines real photographs of the Ghettos and text from Nazi memoranda about what the Ghettos were and where it fit into the 'final solution.' It also includes 4 edited clips of the film the pianist which are very moving, and at times hard to watch, which have learning questions included which can be paused on. The film is a 15, but any violence has been edited out if it was felt to be too much for KS3. Please do watch the clips first, however, just to make sure you feel your students won't be overly distressed. The clips have to be watched in VLC, not media player, and are a little quiet, but are really very powerful ways for students to empathise with what life was like in the Ghettos. Learning questions include: What were the ghettos? What was life like in the ghettos? Why might it have been difficult to keep believing in God as a Jewish person in the Ghettos? There is a homework included, as are extension activities.

Classroom Rights and Responsibilities – Back to School

Classroom Rights and Responsibilities – Back to School

An effective activity for your students when you are setting up your classroom culture at the beginning of the year. Something a little different to the standard ‘classroom rules’ discussions. The activity focuses on 4 RIGHTS that your students have at school: ♦ We have the right to learn at school. ♦ We have the right to use school property. ♦ We have the right to be safe at school (physical wellbeing). ♦ We have the right to feel happy at school (emotional wellbeing). Students brainstorm their responsibilities as a class and write them in the individual honeycomb cell templates. These cells are then cut out and arranged around the ‘rights’ templates. You can add as many honeycomb cells as you wish. Blank cells can be included to fill sections if necessary. This makes an effective wall display that can be referred to (and added to) throughout the year. Examples of responsibilities: ♦ We have the right to learn at school – ask for help when I need it. ♦ We have the right to use school property - put equipment away when I have finished with it. ♦ We have the right to be safe at school – don’t throw things in the classroom. ♦ We have the right to feel happy at school - share things with others. Lists of examples are included to help you guide your students through the discussion / brainstorm sessions. With your students thinking of the responsibilities and writing them in kid speak, they will take more ownership of the classroom culture than if you just display a list of ‘classroom rules’ on the wall. An optional activity is also included. It is another template that says ‘We agree to be responsible’. Your students sign their name in a honeycomb cell, cut it out and place it around the centre template. Included: ♦ Teacher notes and layout examples. ♦ Examples of responsibilities ♦ Student brainstorm pages ♦ 4 ‘rights’ templates (1 per page, colour) ♦ Honeycomb cell templates (6 per page, black/white) ♦ Definition strips of ‘rights’ and ‘responsibilities’ (blank ones also provided so you can write your own meanings of the words). ♦ Additional optional template – ‘We agree to be responsible’ I have also included an editable honeycomb cell template (Powerpoint file). This gives you the option of typing the 'responsibilities' rather than writing them by hand. Provided in 2 different paper sizes: ♦ A4 paper size ♦ Letter paper size Keywords: rules, rights, responsibilities, charter, treaty, expectations, procedures, behaviour management, classroom culture, beginning of the year, back to school. ********************************************************************** © Suzanne Welch Teaching Resources

Let's Discuss: People and Society

Let's Discuss: People and Society

A series of cards which will encourage students to think about current issues and express their opinions in a thoughtful and ordered way. Includes 40 different discussions. The topics chosen in each set reflect real concerns which affect us during the course of our lives and are particularly relevant in today’s world. Each card has three bullet points which suggest possible aspects to be covered. The students themselves should be able to think of many more and incorporate them into the discussion; they can also find out further relevant information so improving their research skills. Cards which focus on all aspects of society: relationships, cultures and social groups, cohesion. Suggestions for use: Students work in small groups; they can be given the same topic or different ones. Either they or the teacher can choose the topic. The task is to consider the topic using the bullet points and prepare and present a short talk to the rest of the class. The task could also be extended so that students conduct research into each area at home and then produce a more detailed report backed by facts and figures rather
