The Red Badge of Courage: A New Kind of Realism

Is it possible to tell a true war story? Tim O’Brien says that fiction is for “getting at the truth when the truth isn’t sufficient for the truth.” To get at the truth about war, class members examine primary source materials from the Civil War and compare them to scenes from The Red Badge of Courage. The richly detailed resource, which includes links to additional materials, suggested activities, and background information for educators, deserves a place in your curriculum library.

I have been able to find a variety of resources to meet a variety of needs. As a special ed teacher I need to continually find new ways of presenting the material and Lesson Planet always has many great ideas that have worked wonderfully in my classroom. It's especially great when I need to make a last minute change to a lesson!
