Looking Out the Window: A Place Memoir
By Aarti Monteiro
Emotions play a big role in how we remember places important to us. Students explore this notion by writing memoirs, using plot, dialogue, and description to bring their stories to life.
5 Sessions: 1 Hour
2 Student Writing Samples
What Your Students Will Produce
After five sessions, students will produce fully written and revised memoirs. These narratives will come to life through dialogue that shapes character personality, and descriptive details which transport readers to a special place in the writer’s memory.
