Holocaust Remembrance Day
Thursday, May 2nd marks National Holocaust Remembrance Day this year. The Holocaust Museum in Washington, DC has anamazing collection of resources for educators and students. The section I really like is American and the Holocaust. The variety of topics, the images, and the videos are easy to access for all middle and high school students. Especially in view of the rising tide of hate crimes in the US, these topics are critical to discuss with our students. As always, Teaching Tolerance has excellent resources as well. The first video below is from their site. The lesson plans are accessible here.
Global Design Day
May 6 is Global Design Day. You can sign up and try out one, or more, of the design challenges. Here's the blurb from the web site: "Students need to make, build, and tinker. The Global Day of Design is one-day that focuses on using the Design Thinking process in school. Our goal for the Global Day of Design is to inspire a transformation in schools around the world to incorporate design into an every day practice with our students." Need more inspiration?
