Final Project



-Split your class into four (or eight) groups and assign one interviewee to each group.

-Ask each group to create a timeline of life events using the audio and transcripts, as well as biographies to piece together the chronologies of their lives.

-This activity can be assigned as a project to do outside of class hours and to be presented to the class at a future date. Creative endeavours are encouraged.

-For extra points, students are welcome to trace the itinerary of their subject on a map of the world from just after WWII (when these women started their migration to Canada).
