Authors on Remembering
It may be useful to assign these excerpts as examples of the types of writing based on memory that your students can use as models:
- M. Scott Momaday on place (p. 106).
- Jeanne Wakatsuke on place (p. 106-7).
- Richard Rodriguez on events (p. 107-8)
Momaday and Wakatsuke provide models for evoking feeling through description, and Rodriguez shows how a childhood memory can be used to raise larger social issues.
