Anne Frank: One of Hundreds of Thousands. [Lesson Plan].
Anne Frank was one of the hundreds of thousands of Jewish children who died in the Holocaust. In that sense, she is not unique; however, through the very ordinary act of writing a diary, through her youthful wisdom and budding literary talent, Anne remains today an extraordinary "symbol of the lost promise of the children who died in the Holocaust." This lesson invites teachers to supplement their students' reading of "The Diary of a Young Girl" by connecting the diary to the study of history and to honor the legacy of Anne Frank, the writer, as she inspires students to use writing to deepen their insights into their own experiences and the experiences of others. The lesson: provides an introduction; cites subject areas, time required, and skills developed; poses a guiding question; gives learning objectives; informs teachers about preparing to teach the lesson; presents suggested activities; suggests nine additional activities for extending the lesson; lists a selected Website; and addresses standards alignment. Contains worksheets about World War II in Europe and the "Diary of a Young Girl." (NKA)
