Level 1 and level 2 comprehension questions for the film, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas. These questions can be used to guide comprehension throughout the film. They are aimed at helping students make sense of the horrors of concentration camps and actively watch the film. The questions make explicit that the camps were marketed as something different than what they were and will help students understand what happened in the camps. They are best used in a history class, as they do not focus on broad themes that English teachers would likely focus on.
These questions are great for English Language Learners (ELL), students who are reclassified ELL students, and who generally are performing below grade level.
