Product Description

Looking for engaging paired texts to add context to your study of Wiesel’s powerful memoir?

The lessons included in this resource will get your students reading poetry and fiction, watching TED Talks, analyzing opinion pieces and informational texts, and making connections between Wiesel’s powerful memoir and other texts.

When you add these fascinating texts to your unit on Night, you will:

  • empower different learning styles with group work, close reading, and dynamic discussions

  • engage your classes in a critical thinking by using the no-prep discussion questions

  • fulfill common core requirements with fascinating, low-key activities

  • get your classes to think about and discuss difficult questions around genocide, refugees, and the effects of violence

  • quickly and easily engage your students with the freewrite and creative writing prompts

  • strengthen your students’ close reading skills by giving them the scaffolding they need to unpack the texts

  • inspire your classes to become more aware of injustice in their own time

  • extend your classes’ understanding of the texts with the suggestions for interactive notebook activities

Essential questions of the texts included in these lessons:

  • What was the Holocaust like for other children and families?

  • How do other writers transform the horrors of genocide into inspiring art?

  • How can we all spark change in our worlds?

  • What are the best ways to resist oppression?

The following resources are included in this bundle, all at a discount when you buy them together:

Night Elie Wiesel Holocaust Project: Worksheets, Discussion, Informational Texts (normally priced at $3.97) This mini unit will introduce your students to some of the ways that people resisted the oppression of the Nazis during World War II.

Holocaust Short Story | "The Shawl" by Cynthia Ozick | Holocaust Fiction (normally priced at $2.97) “The Shawl” by Cynthia Ozick is sparse, memorable, and beautifully written.

Mini Unit on Emtithal Mahmoud, Slam Poet, Activist, and Genocide Survivor

Excerpted from my unit on slam poetry, this two-hour mini unit on the poetry of Emi Mahmoud will inspire students with a real-life example of an artist who turns pain into inspiring poetry. While her work is raw, angry, and challenging at times, it is also fresh, moving, and powerful.

Emtithal Mahmoud is a poet and activist; she is a survivor of the genocide in Darfur and a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador. You can view the full-priced version of the slam poetry unit by clicking here.
