  • “Fire and Ice” and “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost
  • “The Soldier” by Rupert Brooks
  • “The End of the World” by Archibald MacLeish
  • “Anthem for Doomed Youth” by Wilfred Owen
  • “The Unknown Citizen” by W. H. Auden
  • “Warning” by Jenny Joseph

Our community has an American Legion War Museum, and we were privileged to arrange a private tour. The teens (and their younger siblings) were able to see and touch real artifacts, and best of all, they were able to meet with real live heroes/war veterans.

These gentlemen shared stories about their experiences with the teens. These first-person oral histories bring history alive, and the teens will never forget them.

We learned a lot about World War I, as well as other wars, and we’ll be watching the 1930s movie version of All Quiet on the Western Front before wrapping up this unit.
