We started with the stations activity, we read stories about Gerda Weissman Klein and saw a video about her, we looked at primary documents related to her life, we read part of Anne Frank, we read Maus I and II by Art Spiegelman, and we did research on genocide which culminated in a news article. Evaluate all these parts of the unit. Which were most helpful to your learning about the Holocaust and why? Which parts should I change? Be specific. Use additional pieces of paper if necessary.
