PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

From the icy blast of reveille through the sweet release of sleep, Ivan Denisovich endures. A common carpenter, he is one of millions viciously imprisoned for countless years on baseless charges, sentenced to the waking nightmares of the Soviet work camps in Siberia. Even in the face of degrading hatred, where life is reduced to a bowl of gruel and a rare cigarette, hope and dignity prevail. This powerful novel of fact is a scathing indictment of Communist tyranny, and an eloquent affirmation of the human spirit.- Amazon.com

This is a great tool that can be utilized for a book report. The avid reader who takes on such memorable reading will surely enjoy this thought provoking mini packet.

The packet begins with an introduction to the various dictators during the realm of World War II. Incorporated with links, students are able to brush up on their history facts before the initial read.

There are six questions that inspire logs of the events, cruelties that were exhibited, and a bit of research of Stalin's prison camps.

The final question requires a 400 word comparison and contrast essay on two novels. Students are to use this novel and compare it with another novel about oppression based on race, religion, or national origin. A complete four paragraph outline is included to aid the students in proper completion of the published product.
