These are just a few examples of memoirs from last year to help give you ideas for how a video reflection/memoir looks and feels.
Memories of a Fenn Experience
Memoir (from French: mémoire: memoria, meaning memory or reminiscence), is a literary nonfiction genre. More specifically, it is a collection of memories that an individual writes about moments or events, both public or private that took place in the author's life.
Leaving Fenn or even just moving on to high school is a major transition in life—and one worth remembering with a lasting memoir that will bring back the joys, triumphs, setbacks and fullness of your time at Fenn. For your final assessment in English, I am asking your to write a “memoir” of your Fenn experience and to present your memoir in video and written form.
I want to give you as much freedom to create the memoir as possible, but I also want to have some guidelines that we all follow. Please read this carefully and studiously.
