Those both look really interesting. Though I'm really glad I didn't have to teach for either of my postgrad experiences.

We teach Maus in the Honors World Civ class at my school. The kids really like it.

If your students are really willing to learn about it you might want to include the "Wannsee Minutes" (translation) It's not very long but showing the "language" used by the Nazis and it gives a small insight in how the Holocaust was planned.

Good luck with your course.

Week 1 is done. We're still discussing Chocolat, which was the required reading for all fall 100 level courses. I didn't love it, but my freshmen are really participating well so far. My sophomores in 102 are kind of boring me, though. Still, my first week as a teacher is over, and I feel so much better now.
