Padlet
You Tube
Smart Board

Introduction/Engagement:
The night before the introductory lesson on Genocide and its meaning, students will access a
You Tube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=moByGLA7FDc),
in order to learn about the origins of the word genocide. After watching this video, students
will contribute a posting to a class Padlet in which each student will list 3 Genocides and the
years in which they occurred. This Padlet will serve as the introduction to the first lesson of the
Genocide Unit.

Lesson: (developmental procedures)


The night before the lesson the students will view a You Tube video on the origins and
meaning of the word genocide. After viewing this video, students will independently
research the dates of three genocides that have occurred in history and contribute to a
class Padlet posting listing their research information. This will be the flipped
instructional component.
At the beginning of class, the teacher will post the class Padlet from the night before on
the board. The teacher will review with the students how the word genocide was
created, as well as examine and discuss the different genocides that students posted on
the Padlet.
After viewing this Padlet, the teacher will share a Google Document containing
pictures of drawings created by children during both the Holocaust and the Darfur
genocide. Students will be divided into groups of three in order to analyze these
pictures and come up with adjectives used to describe the emotions and or events
presented in the drawings. Each group will create a shared document in order to write
down their feelings/emotions. The teacher will then have the class come back together
to share these emotions. The teacher will record the responses on Smart Notebook. The
teacher will also ask the class who created these drawings and from what part of the
world they were in at the time that is being depicted.
Students will then respond to the lessons Aim question by submitting their responses
on a new Class Padlet. If time allows the teacher will ask for students to share and
further discuss their responses to the Aim question.

Modification: Students who require help in organizing their ideas will be provided with a
graphic organizer in a Google Doc for them to use throughout the lesson to gather the main
ideas that will allow them to construct their responses via the Padlet at the end of the lesson.

Enrichment: Students who have finished the objective early, will be asked to research Raphael
Lemkin and his personal story of experiencing the Holocaust that led him to coin the term
genocide. These students will then share their findings with the class if time allows.
