Vietnam Project

The Things They Carried Unit 10 Project

 

We will be looking at the social aspect of the Vietnam War on a more personal and individual level.  This is also a tiered assignment.  You may do any of the following three levels.   

 

This project is based on the novel The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien.  He wrote this book from his experiences in Vietnam.

 

The three excerpts from the book that we will read are located on my web site at
