Course Three


My class is currently studying Power and Conflict. I wanted to create a graphic that showed that the Holocaust was not something that happened overnight, but was actually a process that started with removing power from the Jews (and Roma and homosexuals and disabled and Communists and…).

The students were impressed with the graphic and were able to grasp the idea. They were able to tie back into a discussion on genocide from the previous class to see just how the process of dehumanization and segregation occurred.

One valuable experience for me was seeing how long this exercise took to complete. This could be a very valuable project for students, but it is time consuming. I used Microsoft Publisher to create and found it easier to use and more powerful for my needs than piktochart. All of the images used are from Microsoft clip-art or in the public domain.
