Literature of War and Peace. Section II: Survival and Afterward.
Bettendorf, Joline; And Others
This 13 day curriculum unit is designed for use in English and language arts classrooms, grades 7-12 and junior college. While it is the second section in a series of five on the literature of war and peace, it can be used with or without the other four sections. Each section of the series focuses on a different genre of the literature of war and peace, and the literature in each section has common sub-themes. In this section, students analyze oral history and prophetic literature; one common subject featured in both works analyzed is the topic of survival. By comparing issues of war and peace in different cultures as revealed by literature, students consider the relationship between ancient and modern literature. The handouts and activities contained in the lessons provide an opportunity for students to develop writing skills and to understand better various literary styles and techniques. Six appendices are as follows: (1) Introduction to the literature of war and peace series; (2) Related activities; (3) Connections to textbooks; (4) Connections to California's Model Curriculum Standards; (5) Bibliography; and (6) Educational philosophy.
