D-Day: Juno Beach

From what we have learned so far about D-day, specifically Juno Beach, one can only imagine what the soldiers were thinking and what they went through during the days up to and on June 6th, 1944.
Your assignment will be to take the point of view of a Canadian soldier who has either already taken part in the attack of the Nazis on Juno Beach or is about to take part in the battle the next day.  You have the choice of presenting the feelings of the soldier by either writing a letter to a loved one, doing an interview (you'll need 2 people in your group to do this) or what ever other way you can think of.  The most important thing to do is to present from the soldier's point of view and display a lot of empathy towards the soldier.  In order to make your presentation feel real and authentic, you must be knowledgable about what events occured during the the time that lead up to June 6th, 1944.

Once you have decided what you are going to do, it is now time to start planning out your project.  Optional: Use BubblUs-Mind Mapping so you are able to have everything planned out ahead of time.  When you are done planning out your presentation, you are to embed your BubblUs on your blog.

Now it is time to start putting your ideas to work and to start writing them into complete sentences.  If you are writing a letter make sure you use the proper format for a fireindly letter and if you are interviewing a soldier, make sure your questions are planned out and answered from the point of view of a World War II soldier.

  1. War is a fascinating subject. Despite the dubious morality of using violence to achieve personal or political aims. It remains that conflict has been used to do just that throughout recorded history.

    Your article is very well done, a good read.
