It looks like many of you are keeping up with the work. Good. We should have most of our "loose ends" cleaned up at this point.

Remember when we did the letter home from the front prep a few weeks ago?
Here's a link to the assignment if you have forgotten:


Now we are going to write the letter.
The link to the assignment is here:


Follow the instructions on the handout. Don't forget to include a bibliography. Mrs. Martin has a clip on the assignment and the sources / citations for you to look at. You can find it here:


Here is a link to the library pathfinder:


Here is a link to the passwords for the library resources:


Regarding your TWO sources (your bibliography), please highlight EACH source (in the bibliography) in a different color.
Next, highlight "where" you used the information in your letter. Use the same color you used in your bibliography. I want to see where you actually used your sources, and I want to see if you actually used TWO sources.

Here is an example of a letter with the highlighting:


Remember, you are using TWO sources.

Remember to follow the assignment handout (please see above).
You are not writing an encyclopedia entry, or a script for a documentary about WWI. You are writing to someone you know. Write to them about your "experiences". If you describe what you are seeing, feeling, hearing..., you should be able to cover the four themes of the letter.

Normally, we would do this in one block period. This should not take too long. When finished, share the letter and your bibliography. If you have any questions, let me know, but look at the instructions, the library page, Mrs. Martin's clip, the example... before you ask.

That should "clean-up" everything that was "loose in our class.
More to come next week...
