Memoir ASSIGNMENT #3: Influential Person
Your task for Individual Deliverable 6 is to write a 1000 to 1200 word (approximately four or five double-spaced word-processed pages) memoir that focuses on someone who has influenced you greatly. It might be a parent or grandparent who had certain qualities you admired and wanted to emulate, or maybe a coach or teacher who set you on the path you were to follow. Go back to your childhood and think of those whose faces, words, or actions are most readily conjured in our mind. You may not recall exactly what the person said or what clothes he/she wore, but you probably have retained an impression of the person. Once this person is clearly in your mind, draft and then revise your memoir so that you can present what you know in a way that informs and engages the reader.
Please note: as with Individual Deliverables 2 and 4, you will write a draft for peer critique, and the final draft will be submitted via the Assignment tool. Please check the Daily Assignments tool for due dates. Keep in mind that late memoirs are penalized. The final draft of your memoir is worth 100 points: timely participation in the peer critique is factored into the final memoir grade.
You are now ready for Individual Deliverable 6, Getting Started.
