The Boy in the Striped Pajamas - film and novel
The CCSS “lay out a vision of what it means to be a literate person in the 21st century.” Integrating film into your curriculum is an excellent way to satisfy many of the new Common Core State Standards.
You don’t need to show entire films, just short clips of these films, to develop competences deemed essential in the new CCSS guidelines.
INCLUDED IN THIS UNIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:
➢ This unit allows for differentiated learning; some students may be more comfortable with the questions that focus on the lower levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy (remembering/ comprehension and simple applications/understanding), whereas other questions provide students the opportunity to focus on higher levels (analysis and evaluation).
➢ Nine multiple choice questions and answers.
➢ One Critical Lens Quotation Practice.
➢ Six essay questions – three of these questions require extra research; one of the questions compares the book/film to Hannah Arendt. These questions vary as to difficulty and are aligned with the following Common Core Standards:
➢ (FYI): The essay questions in this unit are more difficult than the questions in one of my other TpT units:

I teach THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS as a TEXTURE TEXT or a CONTEXT TEXT usually alongside THE REPUBLIC. It is an excellent film to use when studying philosophical concepts including, but not limited to, the following: morality, ethics, sacrifice, duty, and freedom.
