Learners who successfully complete the session will: 1) Learn the difference between Russia, Ukraine, and the Soviet Union. 2) Have an introductory knowledge of the Russian/Soviet experience of WW2. 3) Be familiar with four cultural works which deal with the WWII theme. 4) Have experience discussing these cultural works in the contextual framework of the war. 5) Be able to discuss and compare some cultural works relating to WW2.
There is no homework for this class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no formal assessment. However, the discussions during and at the end of the class will provide an indication of the learners’ mastery of the material. Parents who would like written feedback on their child’s work should request it before the class.
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will be discussing WW2. There will be no graphic images or other graphic materials, but we will talk about the fact that millions died and millions more suffered psychologically and physically during and after the war.
