"It's the terror of knowing what this world is about. Watching some good friends scream let me out!" - David Bowie/Queen
There's few subjects that grab my student's attention greater than the Holocaust. Thankfully, there are some wonderful pieces of literature that bring to light the horrific events of this stain in our world's history. Even though it's cliche, if you don't learn from histories mistakes, you're doomed to repeat them.
This is why I take great pride in doing some of these literary works justice, in hopes of teaching my students to look closely at what it has to say, and thereby making them more informed citizens as they grow into this world. One of my favorite books on this topic is I Have Lived a Thousand Years by Livia Bitton-Jackson.
I'm very proud to add the newest creation to this list. This easy and affordable I Have Lived a Thousand Years Interactive Literary Guide is sure to encourage literary growth with one's students. Each page grouping includes:
-Talk to the Text questions
-Interactive notebook activity
-Non-interactive activity (if one does not wish to try the interactive)
-Graphic organizer activity
. . . and much more!
