This lesson is to be used during any portion of the text Night by Elie Wiesel.
The students analyze the roles of bystanders and upstanders in the text and use evidence to support their analysis.
This is a handout (for students or teacher) of the lesson. It has a reading log (should you choose to use it), aim, do-now, quote to analyze (by Elie Wiesel) and organizers for their answers from the text. The students are given definitions of four key words (including bystander and upstander) then must analyze the text to see how a person's actions, or lack of actions, has an impact on the person.
Additionally, students answer the summation at the end of the lesson. (The summation can serve as their exit ticket if you are so inclined.)
I found this lesson can work at any time during the reading of Night. Additionally, it really gets the students thinking. I hope your students enjoy it as much as mine did.
