English 2 Update

What We've Been Doing...

Since your last update, your English 2 student has completed the WWII Unit. While reading Night, by Eli Wiesel, students completed various activities in class while reading one of the most well-known memoirs ever written by a Holocaust survivor. The Holocaust Museum was one of the most prominent activities that we completed in class during this unit, which asked students to become familiar with other Holocaust Survivors' stories, research the scientific experiments that took place at the concentration and work camps, and create a unique representation of one of the chapters from the book as a final project. Below you can find examples of these projects.

What We've Been Doing...

After completing the WWII Unit, we began a Short Story Unit in which we will read a couple of well known short stories from around the world. These short stories include "The Sniper" by Liam O'Flaherty and "Federigo's Falcon" by Giovanni Boccaccio. Throughout the unit so far, we have completed a Short Story Song Assignment and worked on identifying vocabulary in context.
