Anne Frank is a timeless coming of age primary source for many students. For students included in the general education classes, Anne Frank, both as a performed play and read as selected diary entries, may not be accessible as text for students with severe disabilities. Included in this series are two different comprehension style questions, one for the student who is able to write but needs many prompts and the other is for a student who may use an AAC, a shortened and focused vocabulary list, a character list, and a project to use instead of a written essay.
Answers for Style 2 questions have a lot of space to put in the images that are potentially used by the student with an AAC. There are only two questions per page to help with spacing. Students may be provided with icons, use their devices as necessary, or mark the box as appropriate for the student doing the work.
Questions and text may be read aloud to a student to help facilitate understanding. This packet was designed to work with students who have significant supports in academics.
The key vocabulary words and people described in Anne Frank’s diary for a student to research and find images.
Finally, as an alternative to a written response, a student can generate a piece of art from one of Anne Frank’s more famous quotes. Students can choose from the selected quotes or they can choose one they would like to make into an art piece. The art may be hand created or generated on a computer. (Have students look up the quote posters that are currently available and try to do their own)
For each student: you will need one set of questions best used by the student, a copy of vocabulary and a copy of “People of Anne Frank”, and one copy of Anne’s Quotation Art. The reading text we have included is optional. We strongly suggest letting the student find images that goes with the text through research.
