Holocaust Teachers’ Resources & Year 10 Holocaust History Curriculum Resources  by Dr Bill Allen

Dr Bill Allen has developed comprehensive resources for WA teachers of Year 10 to use to teach the Holocaust part of the in-depth study on WW2.

There are two sets of resources here: (i) textual resources with lesson outlines, readings, discussion templates, lists of videos and activities; and (ii) a PowerPoint for the teacher that accompanies and supports the textual resources.

They are  free  – apply on the contact form below

“Thank you to the “WE ARE HERE! Foundation” for creating and making their suite of useful and informative resources available for History teachers. The resources have been well constructed and sit beautifully with the West Australian curriculum.   I would strongly suggest that all WA History teachers take the time to investigate the website and look forward to Bill Allen’s presentation on utilising the resources at the HTAWA March State Conference.”
