I replied, "Oh, my honour! That is so rude." I told him that he would be in big trouble, but that he should be ashamed of himself for wanting to do that.
He said that he be surprised that I got so upset. So, I explained my activities. I said that we had in recent times finished reading "Night" and that I didn't feel right around standing idly by while one party was thinking of hurting others.
The student get really upset and said that I compared him to Hitler. He started being really loud and yell that "She just call me Hitler!"
I tried to calm the situation down briskly, but was my comparison really past its sell-by date?
Answers: First of all, Earl D, the reality that you stated no one care about "Night" is the common sense that the events are repeating in places close to Darfur and will continue to repeat throughout history, which is a crime against humanity.
Whew...Okay. From the point of scenery of the student, using the words "one person" is probably what led him to thinking you be calling him Hitler. Being a huge fan of this book and the curriculum that it teaches, I know exactly what you intended and think that it be a great reasoning to give your student. My suggestion would be to verbs that child aside on Monday and explain to him your reasoning for the metaphor--not apolgizing, but explaining to him that because no one stood up to stop the inhumane act, it continued, and you felt as though you be going to stand up to his desire to put down the cheerleaders.
I also suggest documenting both conversations--just in overnight case!
Finally, as a teacher of 10th graders as very well, you have 2 option. If everyone was upset, you own to address the class on Monday. Turn it into a teachable moment. You may also want to bring in a few articles roughly speaking other act of prejudice close to something about the Jena 6 (People have a great article a few weeks ago) and even a fact sheet in the region of Darfur. You could use this to make the genuine world connection on how standing by and doing zilch is not the option that the book teach. The other option--if no other students were involved or care that much--just ignore it on the class rank.
By the way, I am so selfish you get to tutor that book, and I'm even more jealous that your student even could twig the metaphor and make the nouns to Hitler (even though that isn't what you meant!).
I don't ponder so, but according to this student, he felt it be.
