I have taught this class over 20 times, and I plan on continuing teaching variations of it for the foreseeable future. It is an excellent vehicle for teaching the following concepts: Free Will, Justice, Morality, Sacrifice, Ethics, Punishment, Terrorism, Heroism, Courage, and Moral Responsibility. I often change the texts and in this version of the course I taught the following: Plato’s Apology, No Country for Old Men, The Reader, Frankenstein, Blade Runner, and The Dark Knight. $
Night by Elie Wiesel Is a required Senior Literature text. He is a survivor of the holocaust: Elie's statement, "...to remain silent and indifferent is the greatest sin of all..."stands as a succinct summary of his views on life and serves as the driving force of his work. Wiesel is the author of 36 works dealing with Judaism, the Holocaust, and the moral responsibility of all people to fight hatred, racism and genocide.
How teachers help us grow: A student in its early age is like a blank white sheet on that anything can be written. Family and teachers place the foundation of a student’s growth, or say they place foundation of the society. Teachers have the moral responsibility to build the future indirectly. Nation like India has most of the youngsters in its society. These people represent the strength and image of the nation. http://www.brainbuxa.com/blog/view/teachers-are-pillars-of-the-nation
Infographics are great to display throughout the classroom in order to creatively organize and display information. This particular one offers "9 Rules for Digital Citizenship," which is essential to 21st century society. It encompasses digital literacy, financial literacy, media literacy, moral literacy, and global literacy. It offers great outlets for conversations on equal rights, responsible spending, threats with technology, and respectful communication.
Writing at The Algemeiner, Rabbi Eckstein says that our moral responsibility begins with remembering those murdered during the Holocaust, but that our moral duty will only be fulfilled by helping those who survived.
