Tuesday, 1/11: Reminder: Lit Circle #2, on reading p39-61 due Block Day. Thin Red Line permission slip due Friday. Done in class: Listen to the comments from the commentary by the American soldiers in Iraq by following the directions below. You should take notes during the interviews in order to address these questions in your journal: THESE ARE PROMPTS. You DO NOT have to answer all of them. Try to create a coherent response based on these questions. How is/was the experience of Tim O’Brien similar to that of soldiers in Iraq? How was it different? Consider: the things they carried with them, their experiences in combat, their attitudes toward the enemy, their attitudes toward other soldiers, their attitudes toward those on the home front, and their attitude toward war in general. How does the soldier in Iraq respond to fear? You might also consider whether or not what you know about O’Brien’s experience AND that of this soldier in Iraq has changed your attitude towards war.
