American Civil Rights Movement and Sarajevo

Students build a more complex and deeper understanding about the Civil Rights’ Movement as well as the activists and their non-compliance/non-violence approach to halt the laws and people in positions of power that oppose change to the status quo and contrast it to the defiance of laws in Sarajevo during the war in the 1990s.

The Together Project

Students in Chicago, Berlin, and Skopje explored minorities in each of their cultures, and stereotypes about them. Students first tried to predict what life was like for the students in the other countries (US, Berlin, Macedonia) - many of these were based on stereotypes and they discussed that. They created films about their own schools and cities and shared them with one another. Then they each researched how minorities came to their countries, and interviewed people from those minorities in order to break down stereotypes. They reported back to one another.

Beyond Boundaries

The fourth and final unit I teach each year is entitled “A Nation Divided and Rebuilt.” The content begins with the events leading up to the American Civil War, moves to the actual fighting of the war, and ends with the period of Reconstruction. Specifically, this unit highlights the economic, political and social tension that ensued between the North and South throughout the mid to late 1800s. Though the harsh realities endured during the Bosnian War occurred over one hundred years later, I push my historians to draw connections to the concepts of change and unity beyond difference.

Personal Choice and Community Dynamics

In this 2015 Milton Wolf Prize winning lesson, students examine the extent to which individual choices shape community dynamics. By watching Survival in Sarajevo, examining images, engaging in group discussions, and creating a final project, students are able to explore how individuals have the capacity to make great changes in the world. This lesson lends itself to themes of community service and action, leadership, and responsibility.

Homeland Project

This project will introduce you to editing in Adobe Premiere Pro, while letting you explore a social/historical issue. This issue affected many Jews in the 20th Century and is currently unfolding in Europe today as people from areas of conflict in the Middle East are fleeing and migrating into Europe. You will focus on the three areas of video production: preproduction, production and postproduction, and will form a narrative that has a beginning, middle and end.

Civil Society - Whose Job is it to Guarantee We All Live in One?

This 2015 Milton Wolf Prize winning lesson is designed to introduce students to the UN Declaration of Human Rights and to help them realize the need for individual civic responsibility to assure that these rights are reality for all humans. The lesson uses Survival in Sarajevo as an example of this responsibility in action and its impact during the Siege of Sarajevo.  It is meant to be done as a Border Jumping exchange and was adapted by me from a lesson by Victor Gurevich to be done in conjunction with his students.

From "The Other" to Another

Too often, individuals or groups are labelled as the Other. The other is someone outside the group, they are considered diffferent; they are not wanted; they are labelled and stereotyped.  They do not belong.
