Two engaging and ready to teach lessons (ppt and worksheet) to prepare students for studying the themes in 'The Boy in the Striped Pajamas' by John Boyne. This lesson introduces students to some of the key terms related to the Holocaust and then requires them to independently take notes and share their research with their peers.
This resource includes a Powerpoint presentation for 2 one-hour lessons (although in the past I have spread this over more lessons if required). For research, students can either use devices to access the Internet, but if this is not available I have included a pdf document which includes 16 sources that students can use for their research in class.
The topics included in this lesson are:
2) The Jewish ghettos
3) The Final Solution
4) Hitler and anti-Semitism
5) The night of broken glass
