We are going to look at structure, language, imagery, and reflection.

Quick write: 
Choose a favorite line from the memoir. Make is something interesting, funny, or important.
Copy and paste that line into your English Journal.
Write about why you chose that line, what it reminds you of, or how it might relate to one of your experiences.
