August 28: Example Memoir reading

1. Students took notes on the Purposes of Writing on this sheet (W1): PIE notes. Here is the teacher copy of the notes if you were gone: PIE notes teacher version

2. Students continued reading example student memoirs in class. They chose the memoir to read and then wrote a one-page reflection on what they read. Honors will read two and Standard will read one. However, students can get extra credit by reading extra memoirs and doing journal responses.

Here are the guidelines for the journal response: Student Memoir Journal Response

Here are some links to the previous memoir books so you can read at home!
