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.”

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

Chapter 16-17 and
Afterword

Why does the author include the “Afterword?” Why
is it important to read the afterword, especially in

historical fiction books?

In the book number, the stars the author included an afterword. It was also
important for the reader to read this. One reason why it was important to
read this is that it tells that the character Annemarie was made up. If the
reader did not read this they might assume this really happened and be lead
to fake news. Another reason why the reader should read this is that why did
the author chose this place in Denmark because the author once stood were
Annemarie stood. If the reader did not read the afterword they would be
clueless about why the author chose this place. If the author did not put the
afterword the reader would not know any of this.

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