Avatar Project: Germany since 1945

Students are assigned an imaginary person in postwar Germany — an “avatar” — and narrate that individual’s life over 60 years through a series of short assignments.

Debate: Reichstag 1930

In this assignment, students spend one class session as the 1930 Reichstag, debating the question, “Germany, what now?” They are assigned to different political parties and must defend their solutions to the country’s problems.
