We’d like to introduce you to the internationally acclaimed Six-Word Memoir project and challenge you to create one for your international teaching career.
Literary legend has it, Hemingway was once challenged to write a story in only six words. His response? “For sale: baby shoes, never worn.” Extremely popular on a variety of topics, many of you may already be familiar with Six-Word Memoir classroom lesson plans.
Composed on every imaginable topic, Six-Word Memoirs distill our experiences down to the bare essence. Here are some examples on various topics:
On Love – Psychic girl left me before date.
On Life – Nobody cared, then they did. Why?
On Family – Almost a victim of my family!
On Joy – Painful nerd kid, happy nerd adult.
On International Teaching (We created 2 of our own) –
Teach, travel, friends around the globe. / Left home, found my real home.
Now it’s your turn to display your creativity and compose/post a Six-Word Memoir about your international teaching career. Enjoy!
