Worth Writing About

Exploring memoir with adolescents

This thoughtful book illustrates how memoir writing — searching for the answers to the question "Who am I?" — can lead students to reflection, to reading, and ultimately, to deeper, more meaningful writing. It addresses the most common challenges faced when teaching memoir writing: How do you help students who say they have nothing interesting to share? How do you balance what's meaningful with what's too personal to share? How do we overcome memory?

The book also delves into the craft of writing, from using mentor texts to crafting intriguing leads and memorable endings. Authentic student models illustrate the deep, important work that a memoir unit can produce. When students write about real stuff — the things that matter to them — they learn more about themselves, their relationships, the way they view the world, and how they want to move forward into the future.
