CHC 2D: New Options for War Brides

Some of you made real progress yesterday, but others didn’t. I know that in at least one case, this is due to the format restrictions of the assignment. Thus, I have added a few options to the War Bride task. Please remember that the original option–a diary entry from the perspective of the War Bride–is still a choice:

  • Write the entry from the perspective of the War Bride’s child. Imagine 18+ years have passed, and the child (now an adult) is reflecting back on the experiences of his/her mom.
  • With 1 partner, write an interview between a TV journalist and a War Bride. The interview could take place a year or two after arrival in Canada, or even 30+ years after the War. Your work will be in script form, and must be 6+ pages double-spaced. If you choose this option, you will have the option of recording your work on Friday (audio or video).

Whatever your choice, keep the following in mind:

  • You must explain how the War Bride met her husband
  • You must explain what the journey across the Atlantic (and potentially across Canada) was like.  Think of key terms like the Red Cross and Pier 21.
  • You must explain how the War Bride adjusted to life in Canada.
  • Above all, you must demonstrate empathy and understanding.
