This is my major writing assignment for my unit on The Motorcycle Diaries book. It is a personal memoir that connects with the theme "the way that journeys shape us," drawing inspiration from Che Guevara's own life-changing journey through South America. It asks students to consider their own life journeys, whether they be literal or figurative. I have loved this assignment because it provides students an opportunity to get extremely personal, if they choose.
