It is a Austro-Hungarian tradition for schools to take group photographs of graduating classes, and post them in shops around town and throughout the school for everyone to take pride in. If your school have tableaux or a yearbook of a class that graduated a few generations earlier, you may have a great project at hand. In this project, your students will choose one tableau to research by finding the people in the class, contacting and interviewing them, and making a film based on what they found. The focus of the questions is up to you.
This project will introduce you to editing in Adobe Premiere Pro, while letting you explore a social/historical issue. This issue affected many Jews in the 20th Century and is currently unfolding in Europe today as people from areas of conflict in the Middle East are fleeing and migrating into Europe. You will focus on the three areas of video production: preproduction, production and postproduction, and will form a narrative that has a beginning, middle and end.
I decided to use film Three promises, as it involves Slovene people. I focused more on the life story of Breda and Matilda, not so much on the Holocaust.
The teaching material is prepared in Slovenian for Slovenian teachers, who can use it in 1 school hour or they can take only some parts of working sheet. I also oriented more on developing some skills rather than historical facts.
The school hour would look like this:
1. students watch film, during the film they fulfill family tree of family Kalef.
Too often, individuals or groups are labelled as the Other. The other is someone outside the group, they are considered diffferent; they are not wanted; they are labelled and stereotyped. They do not belong.
Eine am Moses Mendelssohn Gymnasium Berlin (ehemals JOS Berlin) entwickelt und getestete Unterrichtseinheit.
Studenti byli již poučeni o základních pojmech ( židovská kultura, zvyky, tradice, dějiny Židů v naší zemi a ve světě, Židé a druhá světová válka, koncentrační tábory, perzekuce, zákazy, odpovědi na časté dotazy). Již dříve jsem vypracovala vlastní studijní materiály a pracovní listy na základě mnohaletého studia této tématiky i s využitím materiálů ze seminářů Památníku Terezín. (2 hodiny). Nyní si mají uvědomit, že za statistikou se skrývají osudy lidí dosud žijících okolo nás.
