This packet is complete with activities celebrating Veterans Day for older students. Students analyze the famous poem “In Flanders Fields” in double-entry format, followed by a writing assignment. Essay rubric and poetry rubric are included, as well as a handout regarding the symbolism of the poppy flower as a symbol of Remembrance. Vocabulary PowerPoint presentations in the ExC-ELL format for imagery, symbolism and theme.
These activities are scaffolded and differentiated: teacher decides on groupings for analyzing the text, and writing assignments are scaffolded (teacher can offer student choice or determine writing assignment to differentiate). One group might analyze only one literary element, while another group might analyze all three, with groups presenting to the rest of the class.
Duration depends on teacher objectives: usually one to two class periods.
Student tested, teacher approved. Yours from Paradise Unlimited New England!
