This is an assignment that I remember doing in a creative writing class I took in college. It’s a simple poem format in which each sentence start with the phrase “I remember…” and the writer of the poem can write as many things that they can remember about their pasts. While poetry is not a strong suit for many students, this format is easy for students to follow but also allows them to be creative in their own personal way. This assignment would work well for an 11th or 12th grade classroom. It doesn’t have to be a significant part of the student’s grade but it would serve well as a supplementary assignment to a part of a creative writing unit.
