Free teaching and learning resources
The Institute of Education's Centre for Holocaust education has created a wide range of teaching and learning resources in Holocaust education, available free of charge to CPD participants. This section provides a preview of some of the resources, which can be accessed below or by clicking on 'Lesson Starters' on the side bar.
Book your CPD place now to begin accessing the many additional free materials for use in your classroom that will become unlocked as you progress through the programme.
Lesson Activities: Sample
'Ordinary Things?' explores the power of seemingly everyday objects to reveal intensely moving stories about the Holocaust. Part of this activity is the following eight minute film, developed for the United Nations by the IOE and the Holocaust Centre. Below are detailed lesson notes and an accompanying PowerPoint.
'Ordinary Things?' integrates the video 'Footprints' into a classroom activity and is described in full in this PDF document, which provides a detailed lesson plan, pedagogical explanation and outcomes for exploring the Holocaust through authentic artefacts.
The 'Ordinary Things?' PowerPoint presentation accompanies and complements the video 'Footprints' and is an introduction to the wealth of free resources available to participants on the CPD programme.
At each stage of the CPD, more resources become available as you progress through the secure area of our website.
Register and book your place on the free CPD to begin accessing these further resources and using them in your classroom.
