PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Night, by Elie Wiesel, has a powerful message, one that he continues to deliver in his speeches. We must remember; we must learn.

These assignments will illustrate to students that the world has not learned…not completely. But hopefully they will also discover that there are many glimmers of hope. Students will:

-Read excerpts from speeches by Wiesel to discover his purpose
in writing Night

-Learn about the use of rhetoric for persuasion

-Research other genocides of the 20th and 21st century to discover that the Nazi’s were not the last to practice this atrocity.

-Write an appeal to inspire others to stand up for those who are oppressed.

-Find evidence that we have learned, and that we humans are evolving when it come to human rights.

-Finally they will be asked to write an opinion piece that explores their conclusions: have we learned or is the human race doomed to keep making the same, hateful mistakes?

I hope you get to hear from lots of optimists!
