Class experience

US Grade 6 - 8
I am a licensed teacher for grades K-12. I have taught about Anne Frank in a public school setting and I have attending professional development trainings from the North Carolina Council on the Holocaust, which is an agency of the NC Department of Public Instruction. I have read extensively about Anne Frank, the Holocaust, and World War II.

I also had the opportunity to visit the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam. It was a humbling experience that pushed me to learn more about the Holocaust, World War II, and human rights. 

This is a sensitive topic. It is important to remember that many people lost their lives and suffered greatly during the Holocaust. It is an important topic to study and to teach. I understand that it is important to be respectful and sensitive when discussing the Holocaust with students.
Homework Offered
We will read some of this book during class. However, students will need to read outside of class in order to finish the diary within 6 weeks. Every student reads at a different pace. Some students will be able to finish reading in under 2 hours. Other students may take longer to read. Using the audiobook version of Anne Frank's diary may be helpful. If your learner is struggling to read outside of class, please let me know and I will gladly provide extra support.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class

Grades Offered
Students will need a copy of The Diary of Anne Frank. Any edition is fine. Some editions of the diary include information that others don't. You can read more information about this here: https://www.annefrank.org/en/anne-frank/go-in-depth/two-versions-annes-diary/

The version of Anne Frank's diary that I used when creating this class was published by Bantam Dell in 1994. The ASIN is B007Z332A0. 

One of the reason I used this version of the diary is because it earned the Teacher's Pick designation on Amazon. It is also the version of the diary that I own. Students can read any edition of the diary and still get plenty of good information out of the class. There are different pros and cons of reading each version. Any edition is a powerful story and can be used when taking this class. 

Students can read the diary in print, a digital version, or listen to the audiobook version. Some students benefit from listening to the audiobook while reading the print or digital version of the book. Do what is best for your learner. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This class will deal with many difficult topics, including the Holocaust, discrimination, hate, violence, war, and death. Common Sense Media recommends this book for students ages 11 and up. Please review this book before allowing your children to read it. The Diary of a Young Girl Anne Frank involves descriptions of the Holocaust, discrimination, antisemitism, hate, violence, war, being fearful of death, puberty, and sexuality. We will discuss these topics in class in a respectful manner.
