EDUC 559- Teaching the Holocaust for Social Justice--Sample Syllabus

Offered with civic engagement enhancement: Spring 2015

Designed for middle school through college-level educators from all disciplines, this course engages participants in an in-depth examination of the Holocaust and other modern genocides. Emphasis is placed on pedagogical choices and approaches to teaching social justice topics. Three hours per week.  This course is highly interactive and will involve online and in-class discussions, projects, films, and field trips. This course will also involve a civic engagement project to raise community awareness about the Holocaust and its lasting consequences.

Students worked individually or in groups to host a Holocaust Remembrance Week event in their local community.  Community was broadly interpreted as students’ schools, churches, community centers, or any venue where people could be reached.  Groups and individuals relied on substantial resources from the US Holocaust Museum to organize their Remembrance Week Activities.  Also, students participated in a victim name reading on April 16 outside of Fulton Hall, garnering great attention from the campus community.
