by John McCrae 1915

Welcome to the parent guide for this text! Read below to find out about what your child is reading in class and how you can support him/her at home.

This week in class, we’re reading "In Flanders Fields" by John McCrae.

"In Flanders Fields" describes the painful losses of World War I by showing the reader an active battlefield that is already being turned into a cemetery.

As we read, we will be discussing the themes of Comedy & Tragedy, Honor & Courage, and War & Peace as they relate to the text. We are trying to answer these big questions :

"What can we learn from tragedy?", "How are we changed by war?", and "What makes a hero?"
