Lesson Plan - Get It!
War! What is it good for? Find out what Paul and his friends experience in the front lines of trench warfare in the upcoming chapters of All Quiet on the Western Front!
So far, you've read Chapters 1-3 in All Quiet on the Western Front, that recounts Paul's enlistment, experience in training camp, rest periods behind the front lines, and the death of one of his school-mates, Kemmerich.
In Chapters 4-6, we get to see Paul's company travel to the front line for duty and experience the trench warfare that characterized much of the fighting in World War I.
Before reading Chapters 4-6, there is some vocabulary to define. Look up the definitions for the following terms from Chapters 4-6 in a dictionary (print or online, such as Dictionary.com). On a separate sheet of paper, write down the definitions for each of the terms. After defining the words, write a sentence using each word correctly in context. Have your teacher or parent review the sentences to see if the words were used correctly.
- arresting (adj.)
- loaf (v.)
Now that you've defined the terms from Chapters 4-6, retrieve your copy of the All Quiet on the Western Front Characters handout you used in the first Related Lesson (right-hand sidebar), so you can fill it out for this section of the novel.
You are now ready to read Chapters 4-6 in All Quiet on the Western Front. When you've finished the reading, move on to the Got It? section.
