Enhancing Social Consciousness of Middle School Students

My students need to discover what life was like during the Nazi occupation of Europe by reading about Anne Frank.

My Students

Our middle school is a Title 1 school and has a 100% free breakfast and free lunch program. It has been identified as a school deserving of special attention by charitable organizations. Due to statewide funding cuts for the past ten years, it very difficult to purchase necessary supplies--even tape or pencils! Funds for supplementary resources, such as books are non-existent. If the school or a classroom need extra items, the items are purchased out of pocket by the staff member.

My Project

While teaching Social Studies classes about World War II, a teacher discovered that his students were interested in what life was like during the Nazi occupation of Europe. He wanted his students to read Diary of a Young Girl by Anne Frank so they could get a sense of what it was like to hide for two years. Alas, the library only had five copies of the Diary of a Young Girl, and copies were not available at any of the other schools in the district. To enhance the learning environment and assist the students in learning about the horrors of the Holocaust, the teacher would like to include guided reading of Diary of a Young Girl in future World War II studies. These books will be added to the collection for future classes to read and learn about the horrors of the Nazi Occupation.
