Reflection: Memoir: Evaluating personal narrative as a record of the past (1 of 2) - Section 1: Warm Up

 

I love hearing the stories of my students.  I have to be careful, because if it was up to me, I would ask to hear story after story after story.  I'm always amazed at the backgrounds of my students. It is easy to forget what weighs down their heart.  Today, one student shared her adoption story.  I hope she will use that story to write about so that I can hear more.  My students have amazing stories to tell and if I do my job, they will see writing as an outlet to tell those stories.
