Lesson Plan


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 differentiate between repetition, testimonial, name-calling, plain folks, emotional appeal, and bandwagon propaganda through an examination of both Nazi propaganda and modern-day advertisements. In this folder, you will find a detailed lesson plan, editable student worksheet, exit slip, and overhead transparencies of student notes and advertisements. This resource is part of the World War II and the Holocaust Unit collection.

Reviewer Comments:

This basic math lesson gives students practice comparing numbers. It includes a specific lesson plan telling the layout of the lesson, some practice worksheets, and a hands-on activity where students can hold up cards to show how numbers compare to each other. There is also a presentation saved as a “Notebook” which the CRS Reviewer can not open to review. If this was saved as a PDF or Powerpoint project, it would be more accessible to anyone using it.
