Class Experience

Students will be able to identify common themes among the poets discussed.
Students will be able to make inferences about the poems meaning.
Students will be able to interpret specific phrases or language used.
While my background is in Social Studies, I have been using poetry from World War I to teach that unit for over 5 years.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
While the poetry that we will be reading and discussing is not graphic, the concepts of death and the cruelties of war are referenced and will be discussed. This will be handled in a tactful way and is age appropriate.
We will be reading and discussing poems from Wilfred Owen, Siegfried Sassoon, Rupert Brooke, and Rudyard Kipling.
