This memoir writing unit has everything from start to finish! Use this unit plan to engage the students in memoirs - reading sample ones, brainstorming topic ideas, creating comics based on memoirs, and finally, writing their own! I have included a grading rubric for the memoir, along with notes on the characteristics of a memoir, peer editing guidelines, and notes for the students as they are writing their own memoir. This unit will last approximately 2 weeks, but can be adjusted as needed. Enjoy!
