Holocaust Comparative Essay - Assessment Task

(0)
This is an assessment I created for Year 10 students (15-16 year olds) for their study of the Holocaust. We studied the Holocaust in part as a comparative study looking at other genocides around the world - Armenian, Cambodian, Rwandan and Bosnian. In order to give students some flexibility, they were able to choose which genocide they were to look at in conjunction with the Holocaust. This is designed for a higher ability Year 10 group and would also work for older students. Tara
