AR: 8.5 Grade
Summary: The book Anne Frank: A Hidden Life is all about what Anne Frank and her close ones went through, as the Holocaust was in effect. This book goes into extreme detail. The reader is able to catch the feelings that Anne Frank had, while writing her diary.
Idea: This would be a great book to cover, while teaching the topic on the Holocaust. This is also a great way to intertwine reading into social studies. I would most definitely use this book for upper grades, most likely 6th. I feel like the reading level and content is most appropiate here. For my lower level students, I can always fit this book into where I would meet their needs. This way, they would not miss out on the opportunity of experiencing the perspective of someone who has actually expericienced every bit of the Holocaust.
