This project was created to introduce students to a basic overview of WWII and the Holocaust, and to give them an opportunity to use technology and creativity to present information. Students have to conduct their own research, work cooperatively with peers, and give a group presentation.
I was shocked by how many students had never heard of Anne Frank, so I wanted to begin our unit with some background information to make the play more meaningful. Students worked in groups of three or four to complete the assignment, learned a lot, and had fun doing so.
This project covers several Common Core standards in the Reading Information Texts, Writing, and Speaking/Listening strands. It is a great way to get students engaged in the story of Anne Frank before they even begin the play!
