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.
Inside, you will find a detailed lesson plan, two overhead transparencies for use with the lesson, and editable student notes.
In today's lesson, students identify the strategies they must use in their reading in order to respond appropriately to an open-ended question, plan responses to open-ended questions, and craft opening sentences in response to each question. Students also continue their reading of Elie Wiesel's Night.
