A Powerful Connection

Night is finished.

To focus our discussion over the book, we read a moving poem by Frieda Singer. Using this poem, you all are going to find connections and differences between the Elie's story in Night and the experiences related by Singer in her poem. Make sure to create a poster that is organized in such a way that the viewer will see the differences and similarities easily.

Next class, we're going to start watching the movie Jakob the Liar, starring Robin Williams. We're also going to be looking for similarities and differences between this movie and Night.

With all of the excitement and interest this Holocaust unit has created, it is obvious that I should provide more in-class resources for further reading. Several of you have professed this interest, so be looking for additional materials on the free-reading shelves.
