Students have conducted interviews and created timelines. They have started writing from a list of prompts. Ask your child about how it’s going. Here are some of the prompts they may have chosen, but there are many more:
Many of the answers to these questions will be refined to become part of the final memoir.
Students will be reading memoirs to find inspiration and examples for their own work. Students must complete a memoir every two weeks. They will read a total of three memoirs. They may choose from the books in our school library or they may bring books from home.
As students read, they will be looking for examples of rich text and themes. They will be adding to these shared posters in class over the course of the unit. That way, other students can be inspired by what they find.
I’m excited to walk this memoir journey with students!
