how does one grade a memoir?

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

I spend this spring break week reading the memoir work of my Penn students.

It seems unkind, in fact, to assign a grade to work that barrels forth from open hearts.

It seems right to read slowly, to make notes, to think hard.

Your lucky students. And blessed you! I agree -- how can you grade such work, how can you do anything but bow to it, and say thank you?

Ditto Katrina. (hug-hug)

Of the two memoirs pictured, it's gotta be Gail Caldwell, hands down. Read both.
