This weekend, use your rough drafts and the peer feedback you received to identify and polish up ONE of the six-word memoirs you came up with.
Remember! It should tell a "story" - your words should have a tone or emotion behind them, and make a reader wonder about the character and event behind the 6-words. Be creative and precise with your use of diction and punctuation to maximize what you're able to stay with just those six words!
YOUR TASK --> "Publish" your memoir onto a piece of paper at least as big as printer paper, adding an image that goes together with the words to tell the story. Bring your illustrated memoir as well as your peer-feedback sheet from Friday! DUE MONDAY 9/25
Check yourself! Make sure that...
___ there are exactly six words! And they're all spelled correctly!
___ it is properly capitalized and punctuated (including end-punctuation). Remember, you are writing sentences, NOT titles - not every word should be capitalized!
___ the image illustrates the memoir: the text and the image work together to tell the story.
___ the image & text are placed together on a piece of paper at least 8.5” x 11” (printer paper).
* Be prepared to share your work with a small group of your classmates!
