Open Classroom – learning about Holocaust by making a podcast

Survivor Testimonies Engage Students in Holocaust History:

Through a program funded by the Claims Conference, a group of 8th graders in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania who had never before learned of the Holocaust found themselves deeply affected by these first-person narratives during a month-long educational unit on the Shoah.
Victoria Monacelli, a teacher of reading and language arts at the Warren G. Harding Middle School, incorporates technology into her curriculum in order to engage students. As part of her literacy program, her students produce a monthly “podcast,” a recorded oral presentation on a specific topic for which the students conduct extensive research in order to produce a script. The podcasts are reproduced on websites and can be downloaded into MP3 players.
