Anne Frank Portfolio 100 Points

Assignment #1: Character Bubble Maps (10 Points)

Directions: When you read a play, it is very important that you not only visualize the characters, but understand them inside and out because the author is not going to paint a vivid image for you. As you are introduced to new characters is Anne Frank, fill out a bubble map for each characters, as a way to remember a little bit about all of the characters. You must have one map for each of the 10 characters and each map must include at least 4 character traits that describe the character.
Assignment #2: Journal Entries (20 Points)

Directions: The Diary of Anne Frank was actually journal entries that Anne Frank wrote in her diary. Each entry was a detailed description of her day and the events that took place while her and her family were in hiding. You do not write a journal entry like you write an essay. When you write a journal entry you should use words like I, me, my, ect. because journal entries are all about YOU and YOUR opinions. Over the course of the Anne Frank Unit, I will post a number of journal entries on the smart board and give you 5-10 minutes to respond to these prompts. Whatever you don’t finish during that time will be up to you to finish for homework. Each journal entry should be at least a half a page in length and will be graded on your ability to answer the entire question. (That means it must be at least a half of page, but if you think you need to write two pages to fully answer a writing prompt, you have to write two pages.)
