June 12 is Anne Frank’s Birthday. A blended lesson from WGBH in Boston examines what Anne Frank’s writing reveals about her character and how it changed while she was in hiding. Blended learning provides the best of both worlds: the opportunity for students to work independently and for teachers to facilitate face-to-face interaction, discussion, and collaborative learning. This blended lesson supports literacy skills as students examine what Anne Frank’s writing and a video dramatization of her diary reveal about her character and how it changed while she was in hiding. During this process, they read informational text, learn and practice vocabulary words, and explore content through videos and interactive activities.
Note: Students need to be signed in at PBS LearningMedia to complete this lesson. There you’ll see how to find out more.
