1. Students are to hand write their edits of their Memoirs and now lengthen their piece to 750 words giving special attention to elaborating on the setting, but also creating characters, perhaps introducing dialogue with it in mind that they are creating a piece that attempts to also include the crafted purposeful pieces of the writings we've been reading such as allusions, using punctuation for emphasis, extended metaphors and foreshadowing and the flashbacks to further their perspectives on one or more topics. This extension is due Monday, October 8th.
