  • 7. Creative Writing... • You are now to begin a piece of creative writing about migration to the EU. • Imagine that you are one of the many Africans desperate to get into the EU, bearing in mind the numerous push and pull factors that you are aware of…. • You cannot cross the border legally; you must sneak across. • You are to produce a piece of writing telling the story of how you managed to cross the border (or not!!)
  • 8. How to write creatively… • • • • • • • • use the past tense first person viewpoint (ie. “I”) in chronological order (ie. Order of time) opening paragraph: describe your situation, your feelings and your plans 2nd paragraph: the start of your journey, perhaps mentioning the push factors 3rd paragraph: your journey over the border, still mentioning push but also pull factors use adjectives to project the mood and describe your feelings include lots of your feelings; how would you feel if you got caught??
  • 9. Try to include • Details of the push factors that are making you want to move. • What was attracting you towards the USA (pull factors) ? • How you travelled over the border ? • Any danger you experienced along the way; did you meet the border patrols, did you pay a ‘coyote’ to help ? • What you did if you managed to cross the border
