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 worksheet and schedule for students, lined sheets upon which students will record their rough and final drafts of their essays, and homework for this evening.
