Reviewer Comments:

This is a good lesson on the Nuremberg Laws with clear objectives, detailed procedures, and materials. The lesson has a variety of activities including a review of the previous material, a reading with a follow-up activity that asks students to rank the Nuremberg Laws, and a review sheet for a quiz. While specifically written as part of the unit on Genocide, this could also be used within a unit that only focuses on the Holocaust or the World War II era. It should be noted that there are a few specific classroom references that would need to be changed, and there also activities that include a Bloom’s Time Traveler sheet that is not included.
