REVIEW:
Graduate students for a technology-based instruction class created a Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust. The Web site is a detailed account of the Holocaust and the events leading to it. Users will find articles (categorized by grade level) on the subject from the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC), photographs, drawings, and paintings, a bibliography of Holocaust works, and other documents. There are also links and addresses for Holocaust museums. Educators can use the list of educational plays and films with Holocaust themes as another approach to lessons on the subject matter. A glossary and links to related Web sites are also offered. This is an extensive site that lives up to its title. It really is a "Teacher's Guide to the Holocaust."
