Your narrative poems are due Monday, September 25th. They must be handwritten and illustrated, both to the best of your abilities.
Don't overthink the poem- it's a narrative, so tell your story in an interesting and provocative manner.
Remember, the minimum is 12 lines. And the illustration and poem should be on the same page.
Most importantly- have fun doing it. I have removed the pressure of marks, so just do your best and submit.
Hey Elevens, we will beginning a unit on the personal narrative that will be focussed on a memoir. For those of you who don't know, a memoir is not the story of your life, but it's a story from your life.
You will be asked to write two memoirs- one will be a short, narrative poem, the other will be a actual short story that will recount a moment from your life.
It will be a process. Your hands will be (metaphorically) held.
