I love teaching these lessons on six-word memoirs! These lessons work great with any autobiography or memoir unit, or they could serve as a stand-alone mini-unit.
Included in this lesson:
• PowerPoint Presentation on Six-Word Memoirs with a fun activity for students to complete at the end.
• A link to a video of six-word memoirs by students with an accompanying assignment.
• “My own Six-Word Memoir” Assignment with a modification included for the assignment to be broken into a two-day assignment, in case the one-day assignment is too lengthy for your class duration.
• And a fun memoir/autobiography follow-up assignment that requires students to use a picture from home as a writing prompt.
My students have loved these lesson and assignments, and I hope your students will, too.
