Students will be asked to submit a pitch to a film production company in which they share why their memoir should be turned into a film. Students will take the memoirs they have written during a larger unit and develop a summary that emphasizes the plot, the major arc of their story, along with the major characters in their memoir. Additionally, students will be asked to do an analysis of the tone and mood of their own text to create a soundtrack.
