Each day we will be reading a chapter from each of our three stories, while also spending time learning about the history behind the conflict depicted in each story. So far, we have learned a little bit about the causes of the Holocaust and the Syrian Civil War. While we are reading, students are listening to all three stories, but really focusing on the one of the three that is most interesting to them. Then, they are taking notes and writing a first-person journal entry from the perspective of the main character in that particular story. We will use these journal entries as part of our final project at the end of the novel.
