Both Power Points cover the topics of symbolism, connotation, and denotation in Elie Weisel’s Night.
The first PowerPoint covers the symbolism of the title of the memoir based on chapter 3 and is 13 slides.
This lesson helps students to arrive at the symbolism of the title using the concepts of connotation and denotation.
Your students can really become engaged when discussing all the associations with "nighttime."
The next lesson continues with the second PowerPoint which covers chapter 4.
Reading about the angelic Pipel is difficult and emotional. I find that answering the questions together to be really helpful.
Understanding Wiesel's two most powerful symbols in his memoir really helps students to understand his struggle with his faith, his central internal conflict.
The second PowerPoint covers the symbolism of the angelic pipel based on chapter 4 and is 5 slides.
Both Power Points allow for a class discussion and encourages students to consider what the symbols are for themselves.
My students have always enjoyed both lessons.
