EXAMINE CONNECTIONS BETWEEN TEXTUAL ELEMENTS IN NIGHT AND CLOSE READ ELIE WIESEL'S NIGHT WITH DEPTH AND COMPLEXITY.
NO PREP- JUST PRINT AND GO. The unit will walk students thorough literature analysis, isolate key vocabulary, and includes comparisons with other literature sources including Dylan Thomas' "Do not go gently into the night" and Gary Jules' "Mad World." The Zoom-in activity and Signpost Tic-Tac-Toe will allow students to develop their own hypotheses about character and theme development.
Part of this set includes 45 unique and original writing response task cards that promote writing across genres and interdisciplinary learning. Organized by chapter, the task cards can be used all together as a whole class activity or in smaller segments to examine each chapter closely. 4 Depth and Complexity tasks are included for each of the following icons:
Big Ideas (5 cards); Across the Disciplines; Details; Different Perspectives; Patterns; Trends; Rules; Change Over Time; Ethics; Language of the Disciplines; Unanswered Questions
Also included to provide context for the historical events in Night are 25 World War II and Holocaust Thought Bubbles with a supporting vocabulary word bank. This activity will combine student analysis of primary source pictures with reading of secondary source informational text to introduce students to World War II and The Holocaust time period. Students will explore this interactive approach to historical events in Chapter 5 through the following questions:
What was World War II and why did it happen?
Who fought in World War II?
What were the most significant events in World War II?
What was the Holocaust?
What was the aftermath of World War II and the Holocaust?
The culminating puzzle project reinforces activities throughout the unit and supports student understanding of moral, main idea, theme, significant events, characters, characterization (implicit and explicit details), and conflicts (man vs. man; man vs. self; man vs. society; man vs. nature)
