Be sure to give your parents the letter from Ms. Hammons and me about our new unit of study: war-torn literature.  Ask them to sign it down near our signatures; I want to know that your folks are informed about what you’re doing in language arts class.

Remember, as you read your war-torn literature novel, jot down key words and page numbers where you find content that illustrates the five themes: cruelty/injustices, coping with evil, mistreatment because of religion, race, etc., courage and wisdom, and unsung heroes. Use this graphic organizer as your book mark.
