PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Throughout history, humans have shown their ability to be inhumane. If contemporary adolescents are to learn about and gain an understanding about the physical, emotional and spiritual affects of this cruelty, Night by Elie Wiesel is a good starting platform. This 47-page unit engages the students on an emotional level and pushes them to think and analyze through thought-provoking discussions and writings. Also, this detailed unit studies some of the people and philosophies of the Third Reich as well as explores the power of propaganda. Aligned with the Common Core principles, it has over 18 handouts, chapter by chapter study questions, essay topics, projects, three quizzes and a final test. Buyers can purchase this extensive unit or buy just the test, chapter questions and chapter quizzes separately.

A table of contents would be very useful... the beginning pages & the outline of lessons is a little confusing to follow.
On  April 8, 2014Connie answered:
Thank you, first of all, for your support. Also, I appreciate your suggestion about a table of contents. When I get one done, I will update that on the unit plan and mention it here.

4/16/2014: I have added a Table of Contents. Thank you for your patience.

Happy Teaching,

Thank you for the compliments. I love this unit. The worksheet that you mentioned really helps teachers to check comprehension. As for the Essay/Projects section, when creating the projects page(s), I always try to use as many of the spokes on the Bloom's Taxonomy wheel that I can. Thank you fou buying it. Enjoy.

I tried to download the Night Unit Plan again and it is still in a different language. Please reimburse my money as I can't use this unit plan.

On  December 29, 2012Connie answered:
PLEASE contact the TpT tech team. When I received your last message I contActed them and told them that I asked you to contact them. they said that I did offered the correct suggestion. They also told me that the Night unit was in English. I truly want you to be happy and to get a refund if need be. Only the tech team can help you with either of these issues. You will find the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of any TpT page.
As I said in my 12/10 response to your original question, if you send me your email address, I will be more than happy to send you the Night Unit Plan. Write me at: conniec0548@hotmail.com and put

Too young for 5th graders? We read the book.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 22, 2012Connie answered:
If you read the book, you know that it is rather brutal. The unit plan will help you discuss the who, what, where, when and why's which will help yuo bring the discussions to a factual level. The unit has worksheets that will enable your students to work through the emotional aspects, too. I hope this helps.
