Night is one of the few books that my students actually enjoy reading. I admire Elie Wiesel and other authors who have the courage to share the unimaginable hardships they have overcome. May their bravery serve as an inspiration to others. ~ Amy #OneBraveThing
“Night is purer than day; it is better for thinking and loving and dreaming. At night ever-thing is more intense, more true. The echo of words that have been spoken during the say takes on a new and deeper meaning.”
Non-fiction and historical fiction can especially benefit from timelines. When reading a story that takes place in a historical setting or learning about authors, it is necessary to understand the context. A timeline can help establish important events and attitudes during a specific era. Here is an example of a timeline made using Storyboard That for Elie Wiesel's "Night".
