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 OfferedEach week students will: - read a section of the Diary of Anne Frank - view the pre-recorded video lesson - answer multiple choice, short answer, and essay questions using Google Forms (Short answer questions can be answered in 1-2 sentences.

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. The reading journal is a PDF file that will be shared with students in the Outschool Classroom on the first day of class. Students can complete the questions by printing out the PDF file and answer the questions by hand or by typing directly in the PDF file on the computer. Do what works best for your learner. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about completing the reading journal.
