I don't know about all of you, but I definitely feel the need for my week off for Thanksgiving break this year! Thankfully we only have two more days left and my students will be watching a movie about Anne Frank. We finished the book just in time! I was worried that we wouldn't finish before break and we would come back a week later with a few diary entries left.
Yesterday I introduced students to our Holocaust research project. This is a project that I came up with a few years back. I give students about 5 weeks to work on it, with 1 week of work in the classroom. It combines research, informational writing, creative writing, and argumentative writing as well as research skills.
I've just posted the project in my TPT store, which you can check out by going HERE.
