Then and Now

Students bring in a family photograph they like. This can be from a vacation, a holiday celebration, a family life cycle event, any photograph that includes the student. In class, students look through the Centropa database to find a photograph that looks similar to the one they brought in – people might be posed similarly to the people in their picture, or doing the same thing, etc. Then they read about that photograph, as well as the Centropa interview to find out about the life of that survivor.

Telling Jewish Stories using Wordle

Students are each given a short, multimedia film from Centropa to watch. As they watch – they may need to watch it more than once – they are to write down words that important to the story: events (e.g., Kristallnacht), values (e.g., loyalty), or anything important to the person whose story they are watching (e.g., a violin, sports, family). Once they are clear about the story, they go to the Wordle website (http://www.wordle.net) and make a word cloud that accurately represents the story they watched.

World History Class Centropa Exam

This is a Centropa final exam for  10th grade students. The students will use interviews and albums. There have already been several steps along the path--this is the destination.

This exam will enable the students to use the Centropa interviews to connect the concepts they have studied to the lives of Jewish families who lived in Europe in the 20th century. To amplify their discussions of these concepts, they will also use additional sources to complete the final exam project.
