Goals: To use evidence from a text to support and develop multiple claims
Opener: Skim through your reading notes. For your opener, I’d like you to consider Elie Wiesel’s bias and point of view when it comes to World War II, the holocaust, religion, and life in general. Think about Night as one of many historical documents that can help you get a full picture of what this period in history was like. What opinions and interests will this book be best at providing? What aspects of history does it seem to focus on? What points of view or topics will it not provide? What does the author seem biased towards? What does he seem biased against? Brainstorm ideas. If you’d like, you can skim or re-read parts of Wiesel’s Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech at the back of the book for ideas, but make sure you are still spending most of your time writing.
