Encyclopedia Memoir Writing Project


This is an awesome writing project to get your class lovin’ writing! This project gives students the opportunity to reflect on their personality and life, write in any format (paragraph, list, poem, table, song) about 26 school topics for each letter of the alphabet. This project gives students the opportunity to be creative in the topics they choose and the kind of pictures and art they include in their encyclopedia. If technology is available, students will love being able to use Microsoft Word or Google Docs to create their encyclopedias. I’ve done this project for three years and students always become incredibly engaged after I assign it, which is exactly what we want during our writing instruction!
