We finished our reading of Night this week, but we are far from finished with our study of the effects of the Holocaust. We are going to examine more pieces of nonfiction literature in the next two weeks. I was able to get a virtual teaching trunk for the Illinois Holocaust Museum so we still have a lot left to explore. I’m also very excited for the students to attend their virtual field trip on May 21. Don’t forget to send back the permission slip – in my email last week I said it was due on March 17, but accidently put May 7 on the slip, so sorry about that! If you could send them in sometime next week that would be awesome!
