Description:

This lesson is the first in a larger unit on World War II and the Holocaust. Our shared text for this unit is Elie Wiesel's Night. Students will also be working in literature circles, however, to read books from this period on their own. Our strategy focus is writing responses to short-answer questions. Students will also discuss propaganda, audience, purpose, and point of view.

In today's lesson, students have the opportunity to explore the unit calendar and syllabus. Students then activate their prior knowledge about World War II with an article from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum's Encyclopedia.

This resource is part of the World War II and the Holocaust Unit collection.
