We always love to read students' work. Here are some poems pupils wrote as their final task in a sequence from Shine Bright LLCER: File 5 War Will Not Tear Us Apart.
In this sequence for Première LLCER, in the theme Rencontres Axe 1 L'amour et l'amitié, students considered how World War I intensified human relationships in Britain and its empire. As their final task, they were asked imagine they were a novelist writing a historical novel about WWI and imagine the letter their hero or heroine could have written to the person he or she loved the most, inspired by the letters and poems Vera Brittain and Roland Leighton wrote to each other when they were a nurse and a soldier in the war.
Here are a couple of great letters by students at Lycée Ernest Ferroul, Lézignan-Corbières (11).
Your students have talent, too!
We are always happy to celebrate students' work at any class level. If you have examples you would like to share, please send them to us, letting us know about the task pupils were responding to.
