Product Description

Here's a mini-unit to include in your broader unit on the Holocaust.

This mini-unit uses the 1959 film “The Diary of Anne Frank” featuring Shelly Winters (available at the local library) and "The Diary of Anne Frank and Related Readings" (McDougal Littell, 1996), although this can be adapted to include any version of the film or book available to you. This is a wonderful mini-unit to use when teaching plays, as it allows students to follow along with the play script as they see it brought to life in the movie!

This mini-unit facilitates close reading of rich literature. Additionally, discussion starters and graphic organizers prompt critical thinking, making this a perfect fit for inclusive classrooms.

This mini-unit can be used in either ELA or Social Studies and with grades 7-10. Integrates well with a unit on WWII or The Holocaust.

Depending on the class and the amount of time allotted to teach ELA/Social Studies, I have spent 3 to 5 days on Anne Frank using these materials. The student letter to Anne Frank has always generated beautifully written responses from my eighth graders that become part of their writing portfolios!

Please note this is not an extensive study or a set of lessons on the book "The Diary of Anne Frank." This includes background notes and activities to use with any of the movies about Anne Frank so that you can spend a greater amount of time with "Night" by Elie Wiesel.
