The Boy in the Striped Pajamas is an eye-opening, moving HF novel written by John Boyne that can be used in a LC in your 6-12 classroom. This story is set in Berlin in 1942 when Bruno, a little boy, gets home from school to see that all of his belongings are being packed up. He is told that his father got a new job and that they are moving to “Out-With.“ This story follows Bruno's tramatic experience at this camp and follows his new friendship

Camrynm that ends in a heart-breaking ending. This is a story that everyone needs to read to understand this devastating time in history. The UDL principle I would use would be 9.2: Facilitate personal coping skills and strategies. This story is very hard to read and students need to be able to take their time reading it and go through the appropriate emotions. Talking with each other can help the students cope with this devastating story. 3d
Camrynm The EL strategy I would use would be 42: Have students use timelines to arrange and sequence important facts and information. Timelines would be helpful for this novel so that the students can keep the information in the correct order. This lesson plan is great and gives helpful advice for teachers: https://www.prestwickhouse.com/blog/post/2019/01/how-to-teach-the-boy-in-the-str...

CPettersen I loved reading this book in sixth grade! Such a sad story but a great way to get children to connect to prior events and understand them better. Great job! 1d

TristanPool @Camrynm I love how you have tied your HF book to facilitating students‘ personal coping skills. Relationships matter in the classroom and showing your students ways to emotionally handle themselves can really show the level of care that a teacher has for their school kids. 1d
KristenScala Camryn,
I enjoyed reading this book when I was in middle school, such an eye opening book to read. Another strategy you could use for this book is the media one to connect it with the film. I also really like the website you linked to help teach this novel.

haleyklein Such a powerful book! Thank you for your insight on how you would bring this into the classroom! Thanks for your post Camryn! 1d
ArianaG Wow I have heard amazing things about this book and I think this post just convinced me. Thank you for sharing!!!! 1d
katiehamlin This is such a good EL strategy to use for a book like this! Such a good book! 1d
YvetteE This is a strong classic that will benefit students who are ready to understand the conflicts in history and the struggles many people faced. Great read! 1d
abbie-cadabbie This is such a heartbreaking book. Very powerful and has a great story for students to be informed on. Will definitely include in my future classroom! Great choice :-) 1d

Somehow I never read this one. I now did. In one breath. To imagine that what Wiesel went through happened here, in Europe, just 75 years ago! It‘s incredible and good to always be reminded of. This can never happen again and yet, when I read the news and realize that I know just a fraction of what is happening right now in Syria, in Central Africa, in Haiti, to name just a few. It‘s incomprehensible what people are able to do to one another 💔

Kalalalatja It truly is heartbreaking 💔 4d
Chrissyreadit Yes- good perspective- I feel like we are standing by while genocide has happened in this century already- Syria and Rohyngia to begin with. 4d
Amiable Elie Wiesel was a professor at my university when I was in college. He was equally as impressive a speaker as he was a writer. He would be speaking loudly and forcefully about what it going on in Syria today. 4d

JenniferP I somehow haven‘t read this yet, either! 4d
BarbaraBB @Chrissyreadit Rohyngia indeed, how awful I forgot about them already 🤭 (edited) 4d
BarbaraBB @Amiable It must have been so special to have him as your professor. 4d
BarbaraBB @JenniferP It‘s a must-read I think, in line with Primo Levi and Jorge Semprun! 4d
Chrissyreadit @Amiable what an amazing opportunity!!! 3d
lele1432 I have never read this either. Bought it on audio a few months ago. I really need to get to it! Still kind of blows my mind it happened less than 100 years ago... 3d

Mapping the Bones | Jane Yolen

I would not consider this a strict retelling of Hansel and Gretel and had someone told me beforehand this #YA Holocaust historical fiction was, I could not have imagined it. However, the concept worked fairly well. Chaim‘s remembrance poems played a special part in the story for me.

Cinfhen This book sounds really painful to read 😢😢 Holocaust stories involving children especially twins is especially difficult 1w
Chrissyreadit Jane Yolen is one of my favorite authors, but I agree with @Cinfhen - I‘m not sure I could read this. I might never stop crying....ever. 1w
megnews @Cinfhen @Chrissyreadit definitely difficult parts. A portion of the book goes into the Resistance though and that was good to read. 1w
