Janusz Korczak - A Learning Environment

For Middle School Pupils

The following is a unit on Janusz Korzcak and his Deputy in the Warsaw Orphanage and right hand, Stefania Wilczynska (Stefa).
The unit comprises four parts:
The first two are short biographical depictions of Korzcak and Stefa's lives.
The third part presents central values in Korzcak's educational ideas and the way he and Stefa implemented them in the lives of their young wards.
The final part is a suggested lesson plan for teachers using two poems about Korzcak, presented together with a monument dedicated to him and located on the site of Yad Vashem.
