This thesis offers a rationale for a set of teaching strategies and lesson plans for teaching the literature and film of war to North Carolina high school students within the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. The purposes and challenges of teaching literature and film of war are studied in the context of multiple perspectives, which secondary students often lack in a history focused curriculum alone. Erich Maria Remarque’s novel, All Quiet on the Western Front (1929), Elie Wiesel’s memoir, Night (1958), Steven Spielberg’s films, Schindler’s List (1993) and War Horse (2011), Peter Weir’s film, Gallipoli (1981), and Roberto Benigni’s film, Life is Beautiful (1997) are all examined, wand a full, state Department of Public Instruction-approved curriculum unit plan is presented for teaching World War I and Holocaust literature at the secondary level.
