Nogales High students are especially thankful for friends, family and freedom this Thanksgiving. The Rowland Unified students have been studying the Holocaust this week.
On Monday, 150 history students toured the Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. On Tuesday, they gathered in the gym for a live Skype with a Holocaust survivor.
“I want my students to learn history from firsthand accounts and experiences. These people bring history alive, having actually lived through historic events,” explained teacher Devon Butcher.
Butcher is an enthusiastic instructor of world and U.S. history. At Cal State Fullerton, Butcher discussed how to teach students about the Holocaust after the last survivors had died. Click HERE for entire story!
