Creative Nonfiction

So far I’ve been focusing on the Memoir.  Students write both a personal memoir (warmup) and then interview a family member and write a memoir from another person’s point of view.

I transitioned to poetry using the 6 Word Memoirs!  It didn’t go over as well as I had hoped, but I think I may have lacked enthusiasm that day, so I’m going to take responsibility for it! 🙂

Here’s some audio discussion (I haven’t heard it all yet) about the genre.

Lesson plan on memoirs from read write think.  It includes a sample memoir (6 pgs) and discussion questions.
