Help me give my students 100 copies of the Holocaust novel Night by Elie Wiesel.
My students come from all over Sacramento to be apart of the Pride of the City. For many of the students, this is not their home school. They have parents that drive them, or they get on a bus or two in order to show up for class every day.
My students are driven by a desire to become critical thinkers in a world in need of leaders.
Please help support our class and meet their educational needs. They devour novels and pour through texts which explore social justice, coming-of-age, perseverance, and historical satires.
Thank you so much for providing this opportunity for each and every one of my students to have a copy of Elie Wiesel's Night. I use this Holocaust memoir as my text as we study this horrific period of time in our world's history. I use this memoir to lay the foundation for understanding how this tragedy happened through a timeline activity.
The best way for students to learn about the Holocaust is through the real-life experiences of survivors and using that to process their thoughts through journaling.
Students will be keeping journals so they can document their thoughts/feelings related to the journey Elie Wiesel takes through the loss of his family, several concentration camp stays and his ultimate survival. Some of the reading will be done in class while other times it will be done at home. This reading is a very personal journey as my students grapple with the inhumanity that was experienced by millions of people during the Holocaust. This is no easy task but I believe that my students are more than ready to do this.
The transformation that happens to my students as they ask those hard questions while reading Night is astounding. It begins simply by wondering why the Holocaust happened and would they be brave enough to have done something to help. The depth of the discussions that arise from the use of this memoir with my 8th graders is astounding. These are our future leaders and they need the tools to understand our complex history and tragedies.
