Dismantling Democracy (UK)

Dismantling Democracy (UK)

This is the corresponding PowerPoint for Lesson 8 of the unit Teaching Holocaust and Human Behaviour (UK). In this lesson, students examine the steps the Nazis took to replace democracy with dictatorship and draw conclusions about the values and institutions that make democracy possible. This PowerPoint includes student-facing slides and activity instructions in the notes section for the teacher. It is intended to be used alongside, and not instead of, the lesson plan. The PowerPoint includes basic media and prompts from the lesson plan, but we expect you to adapt it to fit the needs of your students and class.
