Gr. 8 Reading Journal Prompt

Posted: May 20, 2015

8L2- May 228A- May 25One theme that we have discussed and noted in our shared reading of The Cage is the theme of the Jewish prisoners being treated or referred to as animals by their Nazi captors.  In this week's reading journal I want you to focus in on this theme.  You can start by providing me with at least two examples from the text.  You can quote these examples directly.  Next, I want to hear your thoughts/reaction to this.  Why do you think the Nazi's treated the Jewish people this way?  How do you think both parties felt about this?  Make sure you really slow down and show me your thinking/connections here.  Remember, you only have this RJ and one more to do for me!!  Give me all you've got!!
