The six-word memoir is a form of microblogging and is a great way to get students to summarize what is happening in the story while thinking carefully about the character's perspective. This product contains pre-filled pages for students with key terms and literary devices identified, including page numbers for the students to go back into the text and reread for clarification. Detailed instructions on how to teach this writing style to your class, as well as a guided introductory lesson, are also included.
Also included: student pages for illustrated six-word memoirs, a grading rubric, and a gallery walk reflection page, vocabulary word analysis, and 4 final character analysis pages. These lessons are designed to get students talking and sharing their thinking about the characters in the text. Because this format is about quick summary writing it could also be used as a daily warm-up activity to review and reflect on the chapters read the previous day.
