Memoirs: Six WordsYou You are all familiar with Cottage Lane’s “Our Three Words” videos that highlight school events. Now it is your turn but with six! Select six words to describe your school year. This six word memoire must be concise yet reflective. It will not be easy. The six word memoir was originally part of the National Writing Project. Some teacher’s used the topic to summarize weekly activities. There is a twitter feed #6words that others post. Six word memoirs seem to be catching on.
