This A Year in Review: The Memoir lesson plan also includes:
If you are planning a unit on memoir and autobiographical narrative, you should consider this resource. Using Internet research skills, pupils review works by James Frey and Henry David Thoreau. In response to these works, learners become the memoir writers themselves and imitate Thoreau's style in an essay about a place that they retreat to. While the lesson cites a paid resource for research, you might adapt the lesson to include research that does not require the paid resource.
