Teaching Literature Set: The Diary of a Young Girl

Literature Set: The Diary of a Young Girl

This literature set includes a variety of texts that provide historical context and thematic connections to help students gain a deeper understanding of Anne Frank’s Holocaust diary. As students progress through this set, they will learn about the rise of Nazi Germany and how the Holocaust affected different groups of people. The instruction in this set also encourages students to draw conclusions about the time period and relate their learning to the experiences that Anne describes in her diary entries.
