Our Anne Frank lesson plan exposes students to a list of important events during Anne Frank’s lifetime and engages their critical thinking in the meaning of various quotes from her diary. During this lesson, students are asked to work with a partner to analyze short passages from Anne Frank’s diary and answer questions about each passage; having meaningful, guided conversations about her diary will allow students to connect to the material on a deeper level and help them practice their reading comprehension skills. Students are also asked to match given dates or numbers to an event in Anne Frank’s life.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify Anne Frank, list important events during her lifetime, and summarize parts of her diary.
