Our journey through the short life of Anne Frank has revealed a person, I think it's safe to say, that we could imagine as a friend. We've seen face to face the fear and the longing, the unfairness and the brutality, the sadness and the horrors of the Holocaust. And we've seen it all through the eyes of this remarkable 13-year-old girl.
To complete our experience, it's now time to explore topics, feelings, and moments in Anne's story and create our own responses to them. Here is a link to the Anne Frank: Final Project Options. If anyone is going to DC next week, you may want to take a look at them now to get a jump start. You will find a wide variety of choices for all different interests. Choose a project that fascinates you and jump in! I'm also open to hearing other project suggestions, so please don't hesitate to ask.
Experiencing Anne's story one last time, whether in poetry, artwork, dramatic monologue, eulogy, essay, article, presentation, digital collage, will be the grand finale to end our journey. Take the time to sink in deeply to a part of the play, certain character, or experience. Afterall, we read about other people's lives so we can learn and have our own lives changed. Let your project, no matter the format, be one that you complete with a spirit of excellence and one that you will remember long after we've closed the pages of her story.
