Join writer Sherri Flick for this guided lesson on writing a non-fiction essay about food and memories. This lesson is appropriate for grades 9 through 12.
Students select their own memory from a self-generated list and then explore through writing how they own this time and place and are the uniquely qualified person to tell this story. Other adult members of the family can join in, write their own exercise, and then share writing and memories by reading aloud and discussing the writing process and essays.
This video was originally a live virtual workshop but the guided activities in the video can still be completed asynchronously.
