Learn how to identify antisemitism, understand what it is, and its societal and community impact with this explainer provided by Facing History. Discover the answers to many questions, including "Is antisemitism racism?" and "Why does antisemitism persist?" through factual information interspersed with personal stories. In addition, this article includes a series of three reflection questions for student discussion. Readers don't need to register for a free account to access this article; however, registered members can save it to their favorites and download the document as a PDF.

tag(s): bias (22), difficult conversations (58), holocaust (41), racism (76), social and emotional learning (83)

In the Classroom

Include this article with your other teaching resources when discussing prejudice, the holocaust, and cultural issues. Before beginning your lessons, ask students to respond briefly to what they think when hearing "antisemitism" using a word cloud creation tool such as AnswerGarden, reviewed here. Use this word cloud as a starting point to highlight and recognize ideas associated with the term and their impact on those around us. As you continue to teach about the information in the article, ask students to share personal or recent news stories to highlight the ongoing concerns about antisemitism. Curate and share stories using an organizational tool such as Milanote, reviewed here. Milanote is similar to an online whiteboard that allows you to collaborate and share information, including links, images, notes, and more. Extend learning by asking students to choose one of the reflection questions to discuss or research further, then share their understanding using a multimedia presentation tool. For example, some students may want to create poetry and share their work as a video presentation using Vmaker, reviewed here, while others can create visual story maps with StoryMap JS, reviewed here, which includes maps, images, and links to supporting media.

This helpful document provides a visual timeline sharing the history of voting from 1776 through the present time. Black and white images and simple explanations guide voting, beginning with the introduction of voting for white men over twenty-one and chronicles changes throughout the years, including eliminating racial barriers and women's voting rights. Although some information is specific to Washington State, this timeline includes all federal voting benchmarks, making it appropriate for use in any classroom. This document is available for viewing online and as a downloadable PDF document.

tag(s): civil rights (195), constitution (88), elections (80), immigrants (33), womens suffrage (44)

In the Classroom

Bookmark and save this document for use with any lessons on voting and to provide context during American History units. The visuals included on the timeline are especially helpful for visual learners to give context and a deeper understanding of the progression from 1776. Engage students by introducing this information with a gamification app such as Blooket, reviewed here. Blooket works well with both in-person and remote learning and offers a variety of game options, including games for single players and groups. Additional Blooket options are offered as homework, meaning students participate at their leisure during the provided time frame. Enhance student learning by creating timelines that include information from this document and additional information from your lessons. Canva, reviewed here, offers many easy to use timeline templates that allow you to add links to outside sites, images, and more. Extend learning by asking students to interview local election officials or senior citizens to share their experience with voting rights and regulations. Ask students to create presentations sharing what they learned using Google Slides, reviewed here, or Microsoft PowerPoint Online, reviewed here. Include links to audio recordings of interviews, add images, supporting videos, and more.
