All Quiet on the Western Front — Chapters 6-7

In today’s class students worked in seven different small groups. Each group moved through the room, stopping at a different passage from chapter 6 or 7 from All Quiet on the Western Front.

Each group annotated their own passage and wrote some comments on it. Then all of the groups rotated to a different passage, where they added annotations and commented on what their peers had written.

I was very pleased with the way it worked out — students definitely had some good ideas about what they were reading, and the interractive nature of the activity provided students with opportunities to make their own observations and share in a conversation about them with the rest of the class. Here are photos of the seven annotated passages.
