•The Boy in the Striped Pajamas: Novel study to include weekly quizzes, a final assessment, text-related writing assignment, and viewing of the documentary Paperclips. Paperclips is set in rural Tennessee at Whitwell Middle School. Struggling to grasp the concept of six-million Holocaust victims, the students decide to collect six-million paper clips to better understand the extent of this crime against humanity. The film details how the students met Holocaust survivors from around the world and how the experience transformed them and their community.
It has been a joy to work with your children. My hope for the students is that they continue to have a love of learning, and that they make time in their lives to relax and read a good book! Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Enjoy a safe and happy summer!
