Candy Memoirs! Great for sixth-graders!
Read the blog post here: Candy Memoir Powerpoint Presentation
Candy Memoirs! This colorful, candy-filled, ten-slide presentation teaches middle schoolers the differences between the personal narrative and the memoir.
After writing their first drafts, use this presentation to suggest these four alternatives to boring leads: the action lead, the dialogue lead, the thought/question/feeling lead, the sound effect lead. I have used this presentation with sixth-graders working on their candy memoirs.
