This resource connects our core work, Holocaust and Human Behavior, with writing prompts that align with the expectations of the Common Core State Standards. The specific writing prompts and teaching strategies in this guide ask students to use evidence as they craft a formal argumentative essay. This guide also features effective writing strategies for general use in the social studies or English classroom.
Holocaust and Human Behavior uses our unique methodology to lead students through an examination of the history of the Holocaust, while fostering their skills in ethical reasoning, critical thinking, empathy, and civic engagement. We released a new edition of Holocaust and Human Behavior in 2017 and this Common Core supplement has been updated to align with it.
