8th Grade Literature:
We began reading Night this week. This book is incredibly emotional since it was written by an actual Holocaust survivor. We will be doing a deeper dive into what the Holocaust was like through other stories, diaries, and video clips that I received from the Illinois Holocaust Museum’s Education Center. I think they’re really going to get a lot out of this unit.
Instead of doing questions (we’ll be doing that in class through class discussion), the students will be keeping a quote log of important information they find about Elie Wiesel’s relationship with God and his relationship with his father.
Monday: Read Chapter 2; add to quote log (121 – iReady 20 minutes)
Tuesday: Read Chapter 3; add to quote log (121 – iReady 25 minutes)
Wednesday: Read Chapter 4; add to quote log
Thursday; 121 – no class; 123 – iReady
