This is a creative writing journal that is used as an assignment to be done while reading Elie Wiesel's memoir Night. The identification cards for German survivors and Jewish survivors will be attached as free files.
Gist of the assignment: I provide students with 5 mandatory journal stops where students are to experience what Elie experiences. They then make 5 stops of their own throughtout the memoir. I have given each of them the gift of life, but they must figure out how their person will survive the Holocaust.
This is a great assignment to do with grades 9-12. I have done it with all levels of students (honors to general). You will truly be amazed when kids who don't normally produce materials come in on the due date with antiqued paper and pictures.
