The concept map that I created is intended to show both the causes and the outcomes of the Holocaust. I must admit that I do not like concept maps. I often find that the type of information displayed in these things is either too basic or too convoluted to actually help with my understanding of a subject. In order for me to get something I need a detailed foundation of information on which to build my understanding. To me, concept maps do little in the way of elucidating a subject. I would be very interested to hear from someone who finds them helpful, as I assume, due to their extensive use, that they are useful to some people.
In this case, I chose to break the Holocaust concept map into four outlying areas: the underlying causes, the pre-war buildup, the methods used to carry it out, and the aftermath. I feel that by doing it this way I am able to address content standard 1 for Historical Thinking.
