Product Description
Included is a comprehensive unit plan to teach the Holocaust novel, Number the Stars by Lois Lowry. You will find prereading activities, a guided reading plan for each chapter as well as assessments. There are some ideas for after reading activities as well. Questioning is related to the Common Core Standards. With each assessment, there is a focus on a literary element and how it correlates with the novel. Students are asked to visualize and illustrate their thinking as well as in the written form.

A book summary from Amazon.com: As the German troops begin their campaign to "relocate" all the Jews of Denmark, Annemarie Johansen’s family takes in Annemarie’s best friend, Ellen Rosen, and conceals her as part of the family.

Through the eyes of ten-year-old Annemarie, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggles almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden. The heroism of an entire nation reminds us that there was pride and human decency in the world even during a time of terror and war.

This lesson was designed and used with my grade 8 small group and inclusion language arts students.
I use the following unit plan with my higher level students.
