We believe that the story of Defiant Requiem has meaning and resonance in a variety of educational contexts. To provide multiple points of entry to teachers in an array of disciplines, we have developed four different modules. Teachers may wish to use the module that aligns with their own subject, combine modules, or work collaboratively with teachers in other disciplines. Our goal was to create flexible and adaptable modules that could be taught as stand-alone units or combined for longer and more in-depth study.
