In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students examine the situational irony at the end of Erich Maria Remarque's "All Quiet on the Western Front." After examining the novel's final passage, students retitle the book and rewrite its ending, maintaining the original ironic tone and weaving their new title into the ending. They design new, symbolic covers for the book, which feature their new titles.
