Student Writer Instructions:
For this lesson you will be thinking about what makes writing memorable, and then you’ll create your own memorable piece of writing abou something you believe.
First, you need to make a list of ten items. Label your list "Ten rules I will always try to live by." It's okay to put both serious and funny items on your list.
Next, you will revise items on your list so that they are more memorable. To inspire the revision, first of all decide on a different audience for which you will plan to revise the audience. The first button below will give you some ideas of different audiences you could write for.
Then, you will take your revised writing and transform it into a different genre for your final product. It can be anything (poem, song, children's book) but a list of ten items. It also must be memorable writing. The second button below will give you some ideas of different genres or forms your final product will take.
Most importantly of all, as you go through this process, learn a little more about how writers make their writing memorable! Your final product will be assessed on how you planned for your writing to live in another person's memory.
