PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This lesson focuses on the experience of soldiers of the British Empire who are sometimes forgotten or ignored by history. This lesson requires some prior knowledge of conditions in the trenches of WW1.

The class has to imagine how life is different for a soldier from the West Indies once he has come to Europe. They have to write a letter home explaining what their life is like. There is an example letter to help them. The second part of the lesson is considering censorship by the army and the soldiers themselves. They have to censor their own letter.

Lesson includes:
-12 slide PowerPoint
- two sided handout with instructions
- Lesson plan.

The preview is a shortened version of the powerpoint as a PDF to give you an idea of what the whole lesson is like.
I hope you find this a useful addition to your resources.
