This resource is intended for use with the novel, The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, but could also be adapted to any novel about the Holocaust. Included are 5 essential questions for students to consider before, during or after reading the novel. These make for great discussion questions or written responses and are guaranteed to get your students thinking deeply about the topic. The first version is great for digital responses as students will type in the boxes and they will expand as they type. This could be for individual students, or you could have all students answer and respond to each other in one doc. The second version is the paper and pencil type if you need to print and go. Both are fully editable!
