Because, like any good English teacher, I am a fan of Kelly Gallagher's, I wanted my students to complete Gallagher's six word memoirs near the beginning of the year. This helps me introduce narrative concepts, and it also helps me get to know my students. After students complete this sheet, I make a poster of each class's narratives, one for each student. I then hang these in the hallway. I keep all the old posters, too, and now I have a little collection lining my classroom walls.
