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 have the opportunity to differentiate between first person, third-person omniscient, third-person limited and third-person objective points of view using a variety of texts. They will also continue with their study and analysis of Elie Wiesel's Night.
Insider, you will find a detailed lesson plan, editable student notes complete with a point of view flow chart, and two transparencies for use with the lesson.
