Brave New World
POSTCARD PROJECT (pairs)
You will be forming pairs today to create a pair of
postcards from the characters of Brave New World. You will need to
use your books and the knowledge you have gained about the characters and
their situations in the book thus far to create your postcards.
Note: In some of the postcard assignments, the two
postcards your pair must create depend very closely on each other. For
example, you may not be able to work on postcard #2 until you’ve decided
exactly what will be written for postcard #1. Keep this in mind as you work
Randomly select the characters, time frames, and recipient characters
you will be working with for this project.
Decide which of you will be primarily responsible for each
postcard. (For example, if you pick postcard #1 and your partner picks
postcard #2, then you are responsible for doing the writing and
drawing for postcard #1 while your partner is responsible for doing the
writing and drawing for postcard #2. While you should, and in some
cases have to, talk to your partner about what should be written, the
tone of what is written, and the choice of the postcard’s picture,
ultimately you have to create postcard #1 to turn in.)
BRAINSTORM. Talk to your partner and as a pair, make some decisions
about all of the following for EACH postcard: (TAKE NOTES!)
What information would this character want to tell the recipient
How would this character say what s/he is saying (TONE)? (Keep in
mind the character’s age, knowledge, background, and who s/he’s writing to.)
What sort of picture would your character choose for his/her
postcard? (picture must be in color)
Make a draft of what will be written on the postcard and run it by
Create the FINAL, beautiful, neat postcard complete with the writing
and the picture.
