WRITING
Autobiography (Personal Narrative- Memoir)
This is a four week project.
Week 2 of 4
Part 1: Introduction (one paragraph)
1. The Hook – Start your essay with a statement about the story that grabs your reader’s
attention. You may want it to be a little vague to get the reader curious like, “It was all going
downhill, and I couldn’t stop it.” Or you may want to dive in with dialogue. Your hook should
not be a rhetorical question; the best hooks don’t ask questions. Ex: “It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.” ~Dickens
