This interpretation of a memoir is a life story. I ask my grade 10 students to write two of their life stories in ELA. We talk about the different kinds of memoirs people write, and how we tell these stories. I usually use "A Million Little Pieces" as an example of a memoir - regardless of the fact that it is a work of fiction.
This handout is the actual memoir project itself, a modest few pages of text to facilitate the writing of the memoir. Also included is a self-evaluation. I use this assignment in conjunction with other texts, and suggest you do too.
I've made sure this document is in docx format so you can edit it however you choose.
