Elie Wiesel's memoir NIGHT happens at such a difficult, complex time in history. Before reading the memoir, students need a background into what was happening in the world
, so they can more fully grasp
the events around the life of Elie Wiesel and his family.
This 27-slide NIGHT digital slideshow covers the following topics:
* Who was in World War II
* Who was Adolf Hitler?
* Why did World War II happen?
* What happened in World War II (a fantastic 39-event timeline that starts at the end of WWI and ends with Elie Wiesel visiting Jerusalem for the first time)
* What was the Holocaust?
* Who was Elie Wiesel?

What other teachers are saying about this literature unit
♥ Thank you for making this product. The images and graphics are great, which helps to keep the students more engaged. The best part for me, hands down, are your quick write questions. They are very thoughtful, and will work great for helping my students connect with the novel.
♥ Love, love, love this! I just used the introduction powerpoint on Friday, and my kids were blown away by the content, and I was blown away by the detail! The presentations are creative and relevant, but the vocabulary was my selling point! Thank you for all the hard work you put into this unit; it's going to bring this memoir to many a student everywhere!
♥ I have a special education class and the graphic organizers and video links were very helpful.
♥ Really terrific product. Offers multiple approaches to lesson planning that kept my English IV students engaged. Thanks especially for the background information on WWII and the Holocaust.
♥ I have other teaching guides, but this one added a fresh approach to teaching the novel. Figurative language, daily journal quickwrites, the PPT... all great! Thank you.
♥ The PowerPoint designed to introduce students to the historical context and author information is particularly helpful! I also really appreciated the PowerPoint for figurative language. I can use that information in my other English courses.
