ONE PEACE ATA TIME-Activity Six-Word Memoir

 

Use a single picture and only six words to express yourself in a SIX-WORD MEMOIR!

Once asked to write a full story in six words, legend has it that novelist Ernest Hemingway responded: “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.”  Six word memoirs are sometimes sad, often funny — and always concise.

  1. View samples of 6-word memoirs to get inspiration. Additional examples of 6-word phrases can be found at http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=18768430
  2. After being inspired by the samples, take some time to think of what you have learned about with The Nobelity Project.  Pick an Issue and think about 6 words that you can share to express what you have learned.
  3. After deciding on the 6 words that convey the issue that most resonates with you, take some time to search for a picture/photo that might add to the feeling you are trying to convey. You can use PicNikat http://www.picnik.com/ to add your words to the picture/photo.
