As a way to build community this year I decided to do an activity using I Can’t Keep My Own Secrets: Six-Word Memoirs by Teens Famous & Obscure. This week each student will be coming up with their own six-word memoir which we will then hang on the bulletin board for Back to School Night. The memoirs will be anonymous but I think the parents will really enjoy them. I know I hope to get to know my 100 students a bit better through this activity.
If you are interested, below you will find the handout I created for this activity.
