Night: Remembering the Holocaust

My students need their own copy of Night.

My Students

At my school and in my classroom, I have a wide variety of students- from the highest achievers to those barely keeping their head above water.

I teach Reading at a Title 1 school, and it can be so hard because many of my students have trouble seeing the value in being a good reader.

This is why our school works hard to show them that being good readers helps them in all subjects and even outside of school. A main part of teaching students this is having the right supplies. This is where we can use your help.

My Project

This year, for the first time, our students have been asked to purchase a novel for their class. This may be common practice in many schools, but in a Title 1 school like ours, this request may come as a shock to many parents. Unfortunately, many of our parents will be unable or unwilling to purchase a novel for class.

This year, the novel picked for 8th grade is Night.

If you have never read this memoir by Elie Wiesel, I strongly suggest it to everyone I meet. We have read this in the past, and it amazes me every year to see how much Wiesel's struggle in surviving the Holocaust reaches students who can otherwise be naturally apathetic.

Our school owns copies of the book in the library that students normally check out, but, to be real readers, they need to be able to interact with the text, note what they see, and write questions that come up as they read. This text interaction brings them deeper into the book and forms them into real readers- readers who think. With your help, we will be able to mold our students into future informed citizens that think about what they read, see, and hear.
