Participants will discuss text selections and assignments designed to engage veterans and share strategies for managing discussions in mixed classrooms. We will also discuss how literary texts such as Emerson's essays, The Red Badge of Courage, O'Brien's The Things They Carried, and poems by Wilfred Owen and Brian Turner reveal new facets when studied with recent veterans.
