When my colleague Tammy and I first began developing The Boy in the Striped Pajamas lesson plans, we had our students in mind. We did not want to bore them with generic vocabulary work and comprehension questions. We wanted to challenge them as readers and engage them with this wonderful and profound story of the Holocaust. There was so much to include: a look at the impact of the point of view, the irony included, the conflicts, the theme, and of course the author’s craft. We created a teaching unit that would not bog down our students with busy work. Instead we created one that would help them engage with this unforgettable text.
We are quite proud of our The Boy in the Striped Pajamas Lesson plans, activities, and handouts, and we would like to share it with you.

All of your planning will be done, you can reuse the unit year after year, and you can rest assure that you will teach the novel with the purpose of helping your students become better readers.
