Our first Significant Task will be to write a personal narrative on a challenge or choice that each student faced.
In order to help students select an appropriate topic for their narrative, we will be creating Life Maps. A Life Map is a visual representation of the events and experiences that have shaped us as individuals. In class today, we started brainstorming these important events, determining when they occurred in our lives and planning images to represent each event. If students did not finish this planning sheet, they have taken it home for homework.
Once the planning sheet is complete, we will begin to create our Life Maps in class. Students will have some time on Thursday and Friday in class, to put their events (labeled with the name of the event and the date it occurred) in chronological order with an image to represent the event. This assignment will be considered a Writing Project grade.
