Some students find it difficult to empathize with and relate to the situation of the Franks and other Jews in Nazi-controlled Europe. These activities help students to imagine themselves in Anne's position and thus engage more deeply with the text. They also offer opportunities for engaging with the text that go beyond reading, writing responses to the reading, and discussing: here students may imagine, visualize and draw, write letters and diary entries, tell stories, and engage with peers and partners to put themselves in Anne's shoes. These mini-assignments can be used as stand-alone classwork and homework assignments, but I have also used them as a collection of assignments that culminate in a project I call the "Escape Plan." You will see, as you read through the assignments I created, how you could combine these assignments into a project.
