PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

These thirteen questions address a range of different aspects of Owen's gruelling and passionate anti-war poem. They are suitable, with slight modifications as necessary, for Years 8-11. Teachers can allocate different questions to more and less strong students. Following this close reading, the class can dramatise the poem (see other product).

Students find it compelling when I 'interrupt' their work on "Dulce et Decorum Est" to give a pompous, sentimental and ceremonious reading of Binyon's "For The Fallen". For students in Commonwealth Countries, leave out the "They shall not grow old" stanza and have students guess the title and the missing stanza. This heightens students' sensitivity to the source of Owen's anger, and can form the basis of a compare-and-contrast exercise.
