During our last unit, we focused on our unit question: "Does society teach us to love or hate?" During the unit, we read John Boyne's The Boy in the Striped Pajamas and Elie Wiesel's Night.As we read, we learned about some of the horrors millions of people faced as their lives ended in concentration camps. It's hard to believe that something like that could ever happen again.
With that in mind, I want you to take a look at some of these news reports. If you don't know anything about North Korea, I'd take some time to research and read about it. It's important for you to be informed and know what's going on in your world. Here are some articles you might be interested in:
