Getting Started with Holocaust and Human Behavior: Teaching a One-Week Unit
It’s hard to know where to begin teaching your students about the history of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust when you only have a limited amount of class time. Our new online self-paced workshop provides you with lesson ideas and support to help you get started. Holocaust and Human Behavior helps students consider the choices that individuals, groups, and nations made that contributed to genocide. Facing History’s approach helps students think critically about the essential connection between history, their own lives, and our world today.
