ELA Essential Question: What would you do if your world changed in a day?

Once we return from Spring Break, we will continue preparing for the IAR as well as beginning our new unit. In our new unit, we will take a look at wars and their effects on the people around the war zones. We will also explore the Holocaust and the treatment of humans during this time.
