The Wall

  1. Have your students read The Wall by Eve Bunting.
  2. Ask them to write about the two main characters: How do they feel? What are they thinking?
  3. Prepare a list of questions for them to answer. Here are some samples:
    • What do you think the father feels about the war? What in the story makes you think this?
    • Do you think the boy understands what his father is feeling? Why?
    • Have you ever been to this memorial wall? Why do you think it was built? Is it important? Why?
  4. Have your class reflect on the story and how it makes them feel?
