Media Literacy and the Holocaust: Inquiry-Learning
Our webinars are designed to increase participants’ knowledge of Holocaust history, explore and access classroom-ready content, and support instructional practice to promote student learning and understanding of this complex history and its lasting effect on the world.
Media literacy is a critical skill in today’s world. One way educators can help to foster an understanding of the importance of media literacy is through an examination of the Holocaust. In our new online activities for students, Explore the Past, Shape the Future, we invite students to identify the importance of media literacy today through an examination of the impact of Nazi propaganda. This student activity is accessed through USC Shoah Foundation’s IWitness platform, allowing educators to assign activities to students, track progress, and assess learning via provided rubrics. Students are also able to interact and share their learning with teacher and classmates. Prior to attending this webinar, we recommend that you create an IWitness account to enhance your experience during the presentation.
