Modular Study of A Farewell to Arms 

Although the study guide may suffice, more advanced understandings can be had from more systematic study of this novel.  This sequence of modules parallels the study guide.  


Module A offers questions and tasks about reading, aimed at deepening students' critical thinking and question-answering skills. The focus is on "Book I" of the novel to give a firm grounding in critical thinking that should carry over to reading the rest of the novel.


When you're really ready to "get down into the trenches" and find out out about the WWI era and the author's own experiences in that war, Module B offers questions and tasks related to research. 


Module C helps students assemble data for writing their most definitive essay on the novel.
