TEACHING THE HOLOCAUST BEYOND THE
WEEK 3 HANDOUT
Group presentations on the following questions:
- What is the main emphasis (goal) of the curriculum
- What age or interest group is targeted? What
preexisting level of knowledge is presumed?
- What underlying assumptions about the material
and the audience can you find?
- How does the author/instructor attempt to reach
that goal? (What sources, what steps?)
Here were the groups:
- Jeff, Santo, Abby, Stacey

FOR NEXT TIME:
Do "field work:" interview 3-5 friends
or acquaintences about
- What they think the Holocaust is? What do they
associate with it?
- How, when, where, from whom, and what they learned
- Whether they think it important to learn about,
and why or why not?
