Anytime we search for a word or phrase to dilute something unpalatable, a euphemism comes to the rescue. For example, "to let someone go" is a polite way of firing the person. Since war is so disagreeable, the military constantly employs euphemisms. This lesson plan by High 5 Achievers, aligned to the Common Core State Standards, has students analyze war euphemisms and inferences from the novel. The lesson includes graphic organizers with suggested answer keys.
