Dr. Currie draws on many years of experience with children and teens to engage your students about World War II and the Holocaust in the Netherlands. His 30-45 minute presentation grabs students' interest with interactive methods which include a PowerPoint quiz, game show guessing game, "hide from the Nazi's" exercise, video clip of a Nazi raid, questions from the students, and a Kahoot quiz.
"Rob Currie was truly an expert on the topic of World War II. He kept over one hundred eighth grade students engaged and gave them a lot to discuss.Teachers were equally engaged and shocked by information Mr. Currie presented. This is an interactive talk worth including in your yearly studies if you study the Holocaust."
Denise Kuchta (Gifted and Talented Coordinator, School District 158, Northern Illinois)
"We loved having Dr. Currie talk to our 7th graders about the impact of World War II on the Netherlands. He understands the age group and kept our students engaged through an interactive speech, video clip, demonstration, and summative game. The kids loved it. We are definitely inviting him back next year."
