Every year, one of the first assignments Ginger McGrath’s 9th grade English classes do is a Life Map. They are asked to plot 10 significant events that have occurred in their lives so far. Once they’ve completed the map, they are then tasked with writing a personal narrative that highlights one of those impactful moments. This personal narrative is then transformed into a Keynote presentation filled with pictures that represent their experience and in which they record themselves reading their personal narrative.
