Senior Memory Book… Grade 12 Semester Long Project
What is it? It is YOUR story…. You will write a memory book in which you will reflect on different periods in your life and write your memories about them. Some memories may be funny, sad, or even painful. You do not have to share anything you do not feel comfortable sharing.
What do you need to do? You will be assigned a particular number of chapters. The major grade will be on the writing, which will be graded for content, organization, development, and accuracy in mechanics. This means that you need to proofread and edit before turning the piece in for a grade! I expect final drafts, not rough drafts, as each chapter is turned in, preferably typed.
Part One Chapters… Who Am I? Before I Was There Were… Suddenly, I Became Me School Bells (elementary Years) Appendix A (one of four choices)
Part Two Chapters… Junior High I Wish I Could See ____ Again OR Besides My Parents, There Was…. High School: The Beginning and Middle At Last, I am a Senior Epilogue (IF I Could Do It All Over Again I would OR Why I Wouldn’t Change Anything) Appendix A (one of three choices)
