This workshop prepares teachers to interweave a literary analysis of Elie Wiesel’s powerful and poignant memoir with an exploration of the relevant historical context underlying Wiesel’s experience. The accompanying study guide explores the central questions, How is our identity shaped and reshaped by the circumstances we encounter? How do tragedy and trauma influence an individual’s identity and choices? This approach develops students’:

  • Literacy and historical analysis skills

  • Social–emotional competencies, particularly as they relate to perspective taking and social and cultural awareness; and

  • Historical understanding

After this seminar you will:

  • Receive coaching and support as you plan and implement this unit in your classroom.
