Knowledge

Learning Target: I can compare and contrast two or more
characters, settings, or events in a story, drawing on specific
details in the text.

Background of this Story:
In some countries around the world the government is

called a dictatorship. In a dictatorship, one person or a small
group of people have complete control of the country. In
many cases the military enforces the control.If a person does
not follow the rules, they may be arrested, threatened,
scared, or tortured. The citizens of that country are not
allowed to talk or act against the dictatorship. A person can
be rewarded if they tell the dictatorship about other people
who are against the government.

Interpretive Question: How does the dictatorship
system of government in the story affect Pedro, his
family, and the citizens it governs?

Learning Target: I can compare and contrast two or more
characters, settings, or events in a story, drawing on specific
details in the text.

Background of this Story:
“For centuries, the Star of David was a symbol of Jewish

pride. But during World War II, Nazis used the Star to
segregate and terrorize the Jewish people. Except in
Denmark. When Nazi soldiers occupied his country, King
Christian X of Denmark committed himself to keeping all
Danes safe from harm. The bravery of the Danes and their
king has inspired many legends. The most enduring is the
legend of the yellow star, which symbolizes the loyalty and
fearless spirit of the king and his people.”

Source: Peachtree Publishers

Interpretive Question: How did King Christian X’s
response to the yellow Star order in the story
affect the citizens of Denmark?

Exemplary Response (created by the I the book, Yellow Star, King
team): Christian and the danish people were

Chapter 12-13

How does this text relate to Number the stars and
particularly Annemarie in chapter 13?

My Thoughts:

(Can be expressed in bulleted points or paragraph form)
● They both face challenge that were scary but they weren’t scared and

afraid.
● Annemarie had to run to give the package to give to Uncle Henrik to give

to Mr. Rosen, so Annemarie was risking her life running in the forest for
what she was doing.
● Like Annemarie The man in the red bandanna was risking his life like
Annemarie for what he was doing.
● The man in the red bandanna was risking his life to save as much people
as he can when the World Trade Center was about to collapse, like
Annemarie was trying to save Peter, the Rosen’s, the Old man, the youg

Learning Target: I can analyze how visual and multimedia elements contribute to the
meaning, tone, or beauty of a text.

Miracle at Midnight

Do you think the book or the movie is better? Why?

I think the book is better, the book was very
moving and you can tell what’s going on because
of the words and action that the author puts and
uses in the book. The book was very fun and you
can tell what’s going on and how the characters
felt. I think the book had more detail then the
movie did but the movie and the book were based
on the same story and time in life when the
German soldier came and wanted all Jews. The
book is better because the author used more detail
and the book was moving and learned a lot from
the book.
