Class experience

US Grade 7 - 9
This class is taught in English.
Learning goals include, but are not limited to: reading comprehension, note-taking, critical thinking and reasoning, and speaking/communication. 
As an English Teacher, I have worked with war poetry before. Primarily because the imagery is so much more vivid and visceral, and they show a certain evolution in the view on warfare: ranging from glorification to horror, especially as mankind has grown (even verses from the Old Testament of the Bible contain scenes of battle).
Homework Offered
Students may be asked to bring a poem of their choosing to class, for which a link will need to be provided.
0 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Students will be informally assessed upon the conclusion of class based on participation and responses.
Grades Offered

There will be poetry related to warfare: from ancient Greece through modern times.
Poetry sources will primarily come off the internet.
