Product Description
Memoir: take advantage of students' intrinsic love of writing about themselves in this two day unit. Students will discuss the qualities of memoir, compare and contrast two memoirs--links to "Woodsong" and "How to Tell a True War Story" included--or use two memoirs students have recently read--create a criteria chart using the similarities between the two memoirs, include "must haves" and "can dos" (I've included an exhaustive list for both for help!), and a pre-writing interview on memory to help students gather thoughts for their own memoir. Enjoy!
