This unit is based on the 2009 Anne Frank Movie directed by Jon Jones; however, it may be adapted for different film versions. It is aligned with the CCSS, and is designed for middle school aged students. It is recommended, although not required, that students complete this unit after reading some version of Anne Frank’s story.
Students love watching the movie, and I love how they are using their critical thinking and literature analyzing skills to a new medium - film! So applicable to their every day life since they watch movies all the time. A great way to make the literatures standards more interesting to students.
