Lesson Plan Packs
Overview of Lesson Plan Packs
We invite educators to utilize our new library resources. Hundreds of individual and unique curriculum materials and lesson plan units on the Holocaust and related subjects are now available in our library. See topics below.
These units contain mixed and diverse materials, including interesting lesson plans, students handouts, videos, CD-ROMS, and books on a variety of subjects — from teaching about respect for difference and prejudice in the lower grades to complex and thought-provoking subjects relating to a wide spectrum of historical and Holocaust themes. Our educational materials are designed to support and supplement school curricula, and are free of charge.
Each teacher’s unit is different, but all are compiled to assist teachers from across the spectrum of disciplines and grade levels to prepare lesson plans quickly and comprehensively. Each unit is ready to be checked out for a reasonable period of time and is free of charge. Any materials in the unit can be copied for use by both teachers and students.
For more information or to check out materials, contact Maureen MacLaughlin, Librarian, at 678 222-3752 or by email.
