A Graphic Look at The Holocaust

My students need exposure and understanding to the atrocities of the Holocaust. The graphic novel Maus and the picture book Greenhorn will provide a visual for these students to understand the unthinkable and unimaginable.

My Students

I teach a diverse group of students who range academically from students who struggle with reading and writing to students who are academically advanced. I serve students who come from a variety of neighborhoods, but 69% of the students in our school receive Medicaid, SNAP, or some type of assistance.

Regardless of their backgrounds, I am honored to teach exceptional students who are capable of doing amazing things.

My mission as their teacher is to expose them to as much good literature and writing as possible, and to broaden their world beyond our classroom and small community.

My Project

Graphic novels not only provide a bridge to what students already know to what they need to know, but they also assist students in building complex reading and inference skills. Maus is a graphic novel about the atrocities of the Holocaust. The horror of that time and the dehumanization of the Jewish people is difficult for many students to understand or visualize. Maus provides an opportunity for students to grasp this time in history in a way that they can understand.

In the same manner, picture books provide students with a way to continue to build complex reading and inference skills and understanding.

The picture book Greenhorn provides students with a way to understand the aftermath of the Holocaust and the struggles and heartbreak that many survivors faced once they were liberated from the camps.
