The Stages of the Holocaust PowerPoint Presentation and Victim Diary Activity

(0)
The Stages of the Holocaust PowerPoint Presentation and Victim Diary Activity This engaging activity will teach your students about the stages of the Holocaust during World War II either using direction instruction (lecture format) or you can “flip” the classroom and have the students complete the activity individually using computers. I created this activity with the goal of having the students “feel” the pain of the Holocaust victims. The PowerPoint presentation begins with a review of essential vocabulary terms, the history of anti-Semitism, German/anti-Semetic propaganda analysis and information on the German youth organizations. Before the students learn about each stage of the Holocaust they are given biography cards about different victims of the Holocaust that actually lived during this time period. They will incorporate this information into their diary entries. Each of the seven stages of the Holocaust is then explained in detail using text, a film clips, pictures, maps and graphs. After students learn about each stage, the students are to write diary entries about their assigned victim using the information from the stage they just learned about. The diaries can be used as an assessment. Several pictures of the Holocaust victims are displayed at the end of the presentation. At the end of the presentation, students will learn what actually happened to their victim and write their last, often emotional, diary entry. If you want to pull on your student’s “heartstrings” this activity will meet your objective! You may want to have tissue on hand. This engaging activity is also common core aligned! This purchase includes the following: Detailed Lesson Plan 67-slide Power Point presentation 4- page Holocaust Diary Template Holocaust Victim Biographies for each student/Student Directions for Diary 2-page “The Fate of the Holocaust Victims” Handout

The Cornell method provides a systematic format for condensing and organizing notes. Notes from a lecture or teaching are written in the note-taking column; notes usually consist of the main ideas of the text or lecture, and long ideas are paraphrased. Long sentences are avoided; symbols or abbreviations are used instead. These notes can be taken from any source of information, such as fiction and nonfiction books, DVDs, lectures, text books, etc. After about 24 hours of taking the notes, the student taking the notes must revise and write questions and then the student writes a brief summary in the bottom five to seven lines of the page. This helps to increase understanding of the topic. When studying for either a test or quiz, the student has a concise but detailed and relevant record of previous classes. When reviewing the material, the student can cover up the note-taking (right) column to answer the questions/keywords in the key word or cue (left) column. The student is encouraged to reflect on the material and review the notes regularly.
