About this book
“In the literature of the Holocaust, there is conveyed that which cannot be transmitted by a thousand facts and figures.”
—Albert H. Friedlander
Developed for use in high school, college, and graduate studies, The Call of Memory: Learning About the Holocaust Through Narrative: A Teacher’s Guide is a classroom-tested, practical, and highly readable teaching resource, a companion to The Call of Memory: An Anthology.
The Guide offers 43 essays in 10 units of study. University professors from Israel, the United States, and Australia provide detailed literary analyses of each narrative in the Anthology, while American master teachers detail their experiences in teaching these stories in inner-city and suburban public schools, Catholic schools, Orthodox Jewish yeshivot, supplemental schools, and informal educational settings.
Geared to state standards are goals and objectives, vocabulary, classroom activities, discussion and journal prompts, writing rubrics, assessment advice, and extensive print and Internet citations for research and individualized instruction. Immediately useful suggestions make the stories under discussion accessible to learners of all backgrounds.
