How Would You Write A Diary Entry On The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas

I need to write an essay comparing "The Diary of Anne Frank" and "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas"?

I'm trying to think of actual essay topics and what to compare, it's hard because one is fiction and one is nonfiction. It can be anything from comparing the author's writing styles, to certain literary devices, to actual character development.

I need help to choose though because I'm kind of clueless right now as to what I should do.

I need help and suggestions please?????

Who was Maria in The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas?

Who was Maria, the maid? Was she Jewish? I read that the father was mean to Maria but the mother was nice as was Bruno. Can anyone explaine why Maria was a housekeeper IF she was Jewish? or if she was not Jewish, why did the father dislike her? Tell me about Maria?

I need to write an essay comparing "The Diary of Anne Frank" and "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas"?

Well, the Boy... was not a real story. That was made up.... Anne Frank on the other hand was real. So, start there. Read her diary although the publishers changed it and left things out and reworded it so very little of her HER ORIGINAL fears and thoughts remain. But.... I would write about her and how she must have felt when she put that book down.... when she lived everyday with such fear the knot in her guts must have been unbelievably painful. I couldn't have taken it. I would have jumped to my death and tried to take a couple nazi devils with me somehow...

Do you like reading books? If yes, which is your all-time favourite?

Do I read?…..I love reading!! Reading is my hobby…Among all the books i have read so far…my favorite of all time is Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling and next favorite are 2 books….1. The boy in stripped pajamas 2. Anne Frank’s diary(not sure about the name though..). Harry Potter is well renowned book. There are Potterheads all over the world(p.s. potterheads are the die hard fans of harry potter universe). The story is about the adventures of a boy, Harry, who discovers that he is a widard on his 11th birthday…..its all about defeating a dark wizard and his adventures with his 3 best friends for life..Ron and Hermione.The boy in stripped pajamas according to me is a must read….it is set up during the time of world war. A German boy…Bruno makes friends with a Jewish boy, Shmaul(not sure about the spelling) who is held captive by the Nazis. Now..Bruno’s dad works for Hitler….and hitler hates Jews….but Bruno has made friends with a Jewish boy…so 1 day bruno and that boy go looking for the boy’s dad….who actually is killed in Auschwitz ….when they are searching….just then the siren goes on and all the captives are taken to Auschwitz including Bruno and http://Shmuel….so Bruno gets killed with his Jewish friend. This story gives us the message of peace and brotherhood.Anne Frank’s dairy is actually the personal diary of Anne Frank who was Jewish and there are accounts of there going into hiding because they are Jews. I’m still reading the books so…i can’t tell a lot about the book.Thank you.

As a teacher, have you ever developed a bond with one of your "gifted" students? Do you know what they're up to now?

Yes. While teaching 3 - 5 year olds in a title 1 district (so pre-k was run by the district, required education degree which I already had while working on psychology B.A. , etc…), I had a child who could read well. Upon working with him more, I found it was much more than just that:He could read at a 3rd grade reading level, wrote sentences with correct capitalization that were also coherent with proper punctuation for sentence endings (something that hadnt been taught at his age yet), sat down with a small piano keyboard I kept in the class for exploration/circle songs and just started playing songs by sound correctly, and already knew how to add and subtract large numbers with some multiplication. Long story short, I inquired about his abilities with his parent who had no idea he even knew how to hold a pencil correctly yet. They didn’t teach him any of that, nor would they have the time with multiple jobs and such. I gave him more difficult work, and spoke to administration and his parent about IQ and placement testing since I felt his abilities were definitely in the gifted range. So he became my buddy in class for group activities since he often times became frustrated when other children couldn’t keep up because he was advanced. After putting things together, he was able to test into a higher grade and was removed from the school.Seven years later, he got ahold of me through his aunt’s Facebook asking for advice about starting high school somewhat soon since I was “the one that recognized” that he “wasn’t like everyone else.” We chatted for a bit, I gave him some advice, and he told me all about his life for the last 7 years. Speaking to him at felt like speaking to a older teenager. He wasn’t even a teen yet. Now (2018) he’s about in his sophomore year or so (normally around 7th grade if he stayed with peers his age). He still reaches out every once in awhile with some questions and whatnot. He’s in all Advanced Placement classes and will be doing dual enrollment when he is able to. His middle school had suggested private homeschooling since they were even having trouble keeping him challenged at the time, but his parent decided against it.I always love hearing from former students and their families, especially after many years!

What are some books you find to be overrated?

Fifty Shades Of Grey
I never knew this kind of activity could be so boring. It was a horrible story. It was like a generic Harlequin romance book with sex scenes.

These days, young readers don't read enough of the classics. They would find that the stories now are often
remakes of old stories.
Like fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm and Greek, The Odyssey.
