Personal Connections (Homework)

Your daily homework for this unit is to maintain a double entry journal (dialectic journal) as a form of active reading while we read Night by Elie Wiesel. Your notebook will be checked at the beginning of class on the due date! You must have a total of FOUR quotes per entry. 

A double entry journal is a notebook that you keep with you while you read. Fold each page in half vertically to create two columns. In the column on the left, you will write a quote from the text. In the column on the right, you will respond to the quote explaining why you feel it is important and how the quote makes you feel. Focus on text-to-self connections,  text-to-world connections, and moral choices Eliezer makes.

 Quote from the text:  Personal Response:

“What do you expect? That’s war…”

Page 6
 This quote seems important to me because it highlights the impact that war has on their society. He says this because all wars have horrible impacts on the people involved. This connects to all wars, especially what I know from history class about World War II. Germany destroyed the lives of millions through this war.
