Today, we looked at one of the most powerful images that I've ever seen. It's of a little boy who seems to have been separated from his family during the evacuation of a Jewish ghetto. We looked at this image in class and had a discussion about how this boy must have felt as the picture was taken. Here is the photo:
Yala Korwin's poem titled "The Little Boy With His Hands Up." As I read this poem aloud, you all circled words/ phrases that stood out to you as powerful or important. Additionally, you all combed this poem for lines and imaged that relate to our current read, Night.We collected all of your words and observations on the board and had a wonderful discussion about this poem and Night.
We'll continue our study of Night next week.
