In Ms. Hrabosky’s English 10 A class, students have recently finished reading the novel Night by Elie Wiesel and presented their newspaper articles in class today. Students were asked to create a front page of a daily newspaper in the United States that would have been published during the 1930’s. They were to include a lead story and a picture and highlight the events in Germany that led to WWII and the Holocaust. In creating their newspaper article, they learned the difference between primary and secondary sources, conveying information from the two different perspectives, and the importance of taking a view point on issues. To further wrap up our unit on Night, we will be watching several documentaries of Oprah Winfrey and Elie Wiesel touring the various concentration camps and discussing what it was like for him during this time of his life.
