Theme studies have been instituted this year at Sloan-Hendrix High School.  Using a theme and a designated time period allows teachers across the curriculum to contribute to the project.  The themes were set by the English and Social Studies departments and include Territorial Arkansas, The Holocaust, Civil Rights, World War I, and the Dust Bowl.  Below are some of the lessons, information, and handouts developed by the teachers for The Holocaust Theme Unit, which was held October 8-19, 2012, as well as projects completed by students.
