Slice of Life is a weekly event hosted by Two Writing Teachers.
How do we preserve them?
Many of you encourage your students to participate weekly in a Slice of Life format, and some of you have classes that participate in the March challenge.
I found a book this weekend that reminded me of the importance to share and preserve our stories.
Mr. Cornell's Dream Boxes
by Jeanette Winter
In the narrative biography, Mr. Joseph Cornell makes dream boxes. These boxes hold memories and dreams, made with materials he found in his community. This made me think of stories. Mr. Cornell preserved his stories in his dream boxes. We ask students to preserve stories through writing.
Maybe use this book with students to talk about ways to remember and share stories.
