The Things They Carried
Character Rucksack Project
Through our reading of The Things They Carried, we have been introduced to a host of unique and original characters. Each of them is faced with the challenge of surviving in a difficult and challenging environment. Often the only belongings they carried were those that they were able to carry on their bodies or in their rucksacks. Choose one character from the book and construct a rucksack for them, including the following personal items:

Character: Mitchell Sanders
Item 1: Letter Home – 30 points

Vietnam soldiers often relied on letters as their only communication home. They would wait anxiously for mail to come and would often pass free time writing letters home. Imagine your character has written a letter home but has not yet had a chance to mail it. Your letter should comprise one page, double-spaced and typed, and should include at least five specific details from the book relating to your character.

Item 3: Photograph – 30 points

Vietnam was the first war to be widely videotaped and photographed. On a 3 x 5 note card, create a photograph of a scene from the book involving your character. You may freehand draw the photograph or create a collage of magazine images. On the back, write a paragraph (6-8 sentences) that describes the scene. Use at least one quote from the book to support your photo.
