World War II – RAFT Writing
 
 
Before we end our study of World War II, each student must complete a RAFT project.  This assignment is due Monday, March 11th.
 
 
 
 
R - Role of the writer.
 
 
A – Audience: Who will be reading what you write?
 
 
F – Format:  The way in which your writing is presented.
 
 
T – Topic: What is the subject of your writing?
 
 
 
 
When completing this assignment, be creative!  Rather than just focusing on relaying accurate information, try to take on the role of the writer.  All projects should look authentic – (i.e) if you take on the task as a journalist, what you turn in should look like a newspaper.
