Use this visually stunning package of chapter-by-chapter questions as you take your class through Elie Wiesel’s compelling true story, Night. As we work to pull more non-fiction materials into our Common Core-aligned classrooms, this autobiographical account of life in inside the Nazi Germany concentration camps of WWII is an important title to include.
These modern-designed worksheets will pull your students into Elie Wiesel’s story and inspire them to think deeply about the author’s themes.
This packet includes nine pages of student handouts with detailed questions (plot points, inference, and personal connections – one sheet per chapter) covering all nine chapters of Night. A separate seven-page detailed answer key is also included, of course. (A total of 16 pages in PDF format.)
The graphics feature actual historic images and photos of important visual references from the book. A helpful map is also included on one of the worksheets. All of the handouts are designed to pull students into their reading assignments, while the questions will require them to dig deeply into the text and their own minds.
The PDF format can easily be printed by students and used as nightly homework/class discussion starters. In order to save my own copying costs, I email pages of the Night study question packet to all of the students on my class email list.
Sheets can also serve as small-group or full-class discussion starters, short-answer quizzes, and/or differentiated enrichment. I like to mix-and-match the use of the worksheets to keep things fresh as we work through our unit on Elie Wiesel’s Night.
Please note: These questions were built using the Hill and Wang Publishers’ 2006 version of Elie Wiesel’s memoir. Spellings of names/locations (and page number references in the answer key) may vary, depending on the version used in your classroom.
Any study of Night is nicely complemented with this two-day compare/contrast activity taking a look at the opening chapters of two other well-regarded WW2 memoirs, Unbroken and Farewell to Manzanar.
Thanks for stopping by!
