So what is this? A unit study? Stories? Reader’s theatre, or…what?
Good question. It’s all of the above.
Several teachers and students asked what it was like to live overseas as a military brat during the Cold War. Instead of writing a few stories, I wrote experiences into three drama plays and a poem – all with extensive background information.
The plays are not “creative non-fiction.” I did not make up a plot and invent conflicts between characters. I wrote in a “day-in-the-life” kind of way.
- One play is about a church group youth camp in the mountains.
- Another is about riding a train through Communist East Germany.
- The final play deals with bomb threats, terrorists, rats, and “moving again,” for starters.
