Holocaust Research Project

During 2nd semester, each student will research a selected topic about the Holocaust utilizing the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum website, the Student Resources in Context Databases, class texts and activities,  and nonfiction books from the library.

After choosing a topic, students will need to answer specific questions concerning their topics. This is to make sure you have a sufficient amount of information for your project. Students will use the information to create a PowerPoint or Poster presentation that will be presented to the class. The presentation will need to include at least 5 paragraphs of information, citations for research, and a minimum of three (3) pictures. The pictures can be hand drawn or found on a website. Pictures from websites should be cited.
