Lessons for Middle School

The lessons on this page are aligned to North Carolina English and Social studies standards and designed with middle school students in mind and are connected to the NC Standards for middle school ELA and Social Studies. Using resources from the NC Council in the Holocaust and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, teachers crafted these classroom-tested lessons for North Carolina teachers to use in whole or in part as is appropriate for your classroom. Many of these lessons are also shared in our teacher workshops, so we encourage you to attend our workshops and see the lessons in action!
