This writing assignment asks students to put themselves in the shoes of a teenager on the home front during World War I. They write a journal/diary entry describing the effects the war has had on their mother, father, and themselves. They focus on their entry on the home front (though can reference their father's soldiering in discussing how he readjusted to life at home, or injuries he sustained). The rubric is included.
