At Art City Elementary today, September 13, 2013, Miss Molly Haslam had to improvise as she taught a lesson for her Social Studies class in the lobby of the school because an overhead projector had to be replaced. The book she was reading to her students was an Allegory of the Holocaust Terrible Things by Eve Bunting. Miss Haslam uses this book as an introduction to World War two.
The objective of this lesson as the students listened to the story and discussed what they might do in a similar situation is as follows: Students will be able to identify and explain the roles of individuals in a threatening situation. Students will be able to identify the choices of the individual in a threatening situation. Students will be able to discuss what the individual should do in the threatening situation to help others.
