8th Grade on Berlin Virtual Tour for Our “Memorializing Conflict & Monumental Justice” PBL

As part of our McKinney 8th-graders’ “Memorializing Conflict & Monumental Justice” PBL (and Washington DC trip) our students participated in a virtual tour of the Memorial To The Murdered Jews Of Europe in a Google (virtual) Hangout with Leigh Adoff (Jaime Adoff’s sister) from Berlin, Germany.

This was reported to be the first time a live virtual tour was given at the memorial as students “walked” through the interactive memorial with Ms. Adoff, her husband Joerg (who is German), and a professional tour guide, Judith Pauly, who was born in East Berlin. Students asked questions about the architectural design, significance, and historical context of the memorial. Students also got to “walk” through the Brandenburg Gate, view the dome of the Reichstag building, Germany’s seat of government, and take a quick look at the American Embassy.

This virtual visit was a part of the 8th-grade “Memorialized Conflict and Monumental Justice” PBL. The driving question of this PBL asks, “How can we as 8th graders reflect on and transform past conflicts -- local, national, and international -- through performance, visual media, and monument design to create a vision of justice for future generations?”
