WWII through Jewish Eyes
Past and Present-Day Effects of Prejudice
What types of persecution did the Jews experience during WWII, and how is prejudice relevant to me today?
My students will be focusing on the political and social impact of WWII and the roll of Adolf Hitler.
CCSS RL5.2: Determine a theme of a story, drama, or poem from details in the text, including how characters in a story or drama respond to challenges or how the speaker in a poem reflects upon a topic; summarize the text.
Through reading Number the Stars my students will determine the theme which involves prejudice against the Jews. They will also be able to summarize the prejudice taking place against the Jews in WWII as discussed in Number the Stars. Entry Event: Blog entries about present-day prejudice
Challenge to Students: Through this project, I want my students to realize the effect that prejudice had and is currently having.
