Anne Frank diary and comprehension

I adapted Anne Frank's most famous diary entries into one incredible piece of writing. This is a truly wonderful piece that my classes have thoroughly enjoyed reading (They also wrote their own diaries from different perspectives) and we had some brilliant discussions e.g. Was Anne right in saying Despite everything, I believe that people are really good at heart... Comes with a comprehensive mark scheme full of 1, 2 and 3 mark question exemplars. Another amazing resource, I have decided to share and the questions are fantastic. Ideal for English lessons, guided reading or homework. Enjoy, only £2!
