Lesson Plan - Get It!
For a soldier, going home can be a dream or a nightmare. See how Paul experiences his first extended leave after fighting on the front.
So far, you've seen Paul and his friends at the front and behind the lines.
However, soldiers were sometimes allowed to visit home on leave. In Chapter 7, Paul returns home to visit his family for the first time after experiencing fighting in the front lines.
Before reading Chapter 7, there is some vocabulary to define.
On a separate sheet of paper, write down the definitions for the words listed below. You can look them up in either a print or online dictionary like Dictionary.com. After writing down the definitions, write a sentence with each word, using it correctly in the sentence's context. Have your parent or teacher check the sentences to make sure the words are used properly. The vocabulary words are:
- Plume (v)
- Brood (v)
Now that you've defined the vocabulary for Chapter 7, you are ready to read the chapter. Remember to have your All Quiet on the Western Front Characters (Downloadable Resources) handout nearby so you can fill in any new information into the chart as you read the chapter.
Once you've finished Chapter 7, move on to the Got It? section.
