This lesson is part of 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 work through the entire writing process to respond to an open-ended question about Elie Wiesel's memoir, Night. Students are expected to use MLA citation to support their responses.
Inside, you will find a detailed lesson plan, an editable student worksheet, independent practice for collection and determination of mastery, and a separate sheet for student homework.
