Late Policy: Writing experiments will be graded down 5 percentage points for each day they are late. Late assignments will not be accepted for credit after the fifth day they are late.
Grading Method: credit / half credit / no credit
Read over your notes from the in-class I remember free write exercise (if you have not done this, follow the directions below) and try to find themes, particular events, or certain periods of your life that stand out to you.
Choose one of these to focus on, then do another I remember free write exercise in which you try to remember as much as you can about that theme / event / period.
Finally, use your notes to create a poem. Feel free to change the order of the lines, edit the wording, etc. As you make your poem, READ IT ALOUD! Pay special attention to rhythm and sound.
In class “I Remember” writing exercise (for those who were absent):
- Read this.
- Write for 5 minutes without stopping and without thinking following only this constraint: each sentence or phrase must begin with the phrase “I remember”
