Using 6-word-memoir Posters to Discuss Reading, Inspire Writing


My students are creating posters featuring six-word memoirs and artwork inspired by their reading to promote class discussion and their writing.

At my institution our Writing II class is based on using a reader and it is intended for students to read, analyze, and evaluate diverse texts across disciplines in class discussions and in writing. The big problem is that students don’t want to read these diverse texts and they are even less likely to want to engage with them very deeply. This, of course, does not bode well for the writing they generate.
