Current Learning Goals: Night


Night by Elie Wiesel: Essential Questions and Learning Goals


Essential Questions:

  • How does crisis or fear impact the human spirit and affect decisions and/or consequences?

  • What motivates us to forgive?

  • What do people gain or lose by granting forgiveness?

Learning Goals:

  • I can analyze why authors choose specific words to evoke a particular meaning, mood, or tone.

  • I can determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including figurative, connotative, and technical meanings.

  • I can determine an author’s point of view or purpose in a text and analyze how an author uses rhetorical to advance that purpose.

  • I can analyze various accounts of a subject told in different mediums (e.g. a person’s life story in both print and multimedia), determining which details are emphasized in each account and why.

  • I can draw evidence from literary or informational texts to support analysis, reflection, and research.

  • I can write routinely over extended time frames (time for research, reflection, and revision) and shorter time frames (a single sitting or a day or two) for a range of tasks, purposes, and audiences.

  • I can initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade10 topics, texts, and issues, building on others' ideas and expressing my own clearly and persuasively.
