Lesson Plan


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 will split into four different groups to present their projects, assess their peers' presentations, conclude work within literature circles, complete a unit survey, and read and code their novels silently. Inside, you will find a detailed lesson plan, editable students notes complete with a schedule of activities, rubrics for peer assessment of project presentations, teacher rubrics for assessment of project presentations, and a unit survey. This resource is part of the World War II and the Holocaust Unit collection.
