A Few Additional Notes
The group activity has students working in small groups to discuss the diary as a portrait of war, a philosophy of life, a portrait of adolescence, or a study in the nature of people. Using the information they have acquired so far through individual work and class discussions, students get together to further examine the text and to brainstorm ideas relating the diary to one of these topics.
There are three writing assignments in this unit, each with the purpose of informing, persuading, or expressing personal opinions. The detailed writing assignment sheets guide students through the assignments. The first assignment is to inform: students write a composition about one of the background topics assigned in Lesson One. The second assignment is to express personal opinions: students will keep a diary for the duration of the unit. The third assignment is to persuade: students pretend to be Anne, and try to convince Mummy to alter her treatment of Anne to the way Anne would like to be treated.
These materials are geared for whole class use but are very easily adaped for independent study work, lit circles or book groups, home school use, or tutoring. If you have never taught this book before, this manual will give you a great foundation of materials on a variety of levels. If you have taught this book before, you might like to know that many veteran teachers have told us they have found our LitPlan Teacher Pack manuals to be much more thorough and more helpful than other materials they have used.
