FREE Six-Word Teaching Guides


Since we launched the Six-Word Memoir project, educators of all kinds have found six words to be a terrific classroom assignment and catalyst for self-expression.

Here we offer four free Teaching Guides for you to download and share with your students. Just add to your cart and checkout and all of the following Teaching Guides will be instantly emailed to you (in a compressed file with all four guides) and available for download.

If you teach Six-Word Memoirs in your classroom, please let us know how it goes by sending a note to — your class could be featured on our Six in Schools blog.
