After studying the holocaust, my group worked on a google slideshow about Jewish Resistance and Rescue. The image is Oskar Schindler who rescued 1,200 Jews during the Holocaust. We presented our slide show to the class. It went fine. The topics in the slideshow are ghettos uprisings, spies and soldiers, jewish resistance, the white rose, and organized resistance movements.
Our class read A Midsummer Night's Dream by Shakespeare. We wrote a weekly writing response about the subject of arranged marriage. It is about the pros and cons of arranged marriage and what I would do if I was being forced into an arranged marriage. In Midsummer Night's Dream, Hermia is being forced to marry Demetrius, by her father, Egeus, but she really wants to marry Lysander.
We read holocaust novels for our literature circle groups in class. After we finished, we made a book trailer video on WeVideo. I think it turned out fine. This book trailer is based on the true story, The Nazi Officer's Wife by Edith Hahns Beer.
This is an argumentative essay that argues the side of the defense attorney. I claim that Johnny Cade, a character from the book, The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton, is innocent and should not be convicted of murder. Johnny Cade stabbed Robert Sheldon to death after he tried to beat him up. In this essay, I argue that Johnny did it in self-defense.
Iris Dunkle came to our class and taught us poetry. This poem is titled the Heavens that Rose Above Hell. It is about a hopeless settler who came from Europe and takes the rough journey America overseas. I also read this poem at the poetry invite night.
After reading the book The House On Mango Street by Sandra Cisneros, I had to write a vignette project. The House on Mango Street was made up of short vignettes so my writing project is to. It is an autobiography of important events in my life.
A guest speaker, Sanders Feldhorn, visited Willowside Middle School to share his relative's stories about the holocaust. His family was Jewish and survived the Holocaust. This was important because it gave us students a new insight about the holocaust. This link is a thank you letter that I had to write to him.
