Veterans' Voyages

Introduce your middle and high schoolers to a different perspective on war: that of  soldier's. Read Guisseppi Ungaretti's poem "Vigil" to kick-start this lesson. After discussing his perspective, read "The Screaming Eagles Fly to the Gulf." A list of discussion questions are included for this article as well. The lesson continues when the class is asked to brainstorm a list of the most current wars. Completing just 10-15 minutes of research on their assigned war, they brainstorm a list of questions they'd ask a current veteran, if they had the chance. As homework, each learner interviews a veteran and writes a tribute to his or her life overseas.

The lessons are so well laid out and comprehensive, it is a delight to be able to plug them in to my curriculum. Working within an alternative school, I need to provide my students with clear and specific information, links, and directions. Lesson Planet helps me find it all. Thank you so much!
