Six-Words for Administrators

Bring Six-Word Memoirs to your school!

Six-Word Memoirs provide a flexible, adaptable writing format that can be used in any K-12 learning environment to increase writing confidence, amplify social emotional learning, and help all students find their writing voice.

What’s a Six-Word Memoir?

Writing in six words is a creative way to catalyze conversation, spark imagination, and boil big ideas down to their essence.

Here’s what a peak at what students have written:

Finally learned “weird” is a compliment.

Autistic brothers give the best hugs.

Mom just revoked my creative license.

It is very, very, very, complicated.

The Book Creation Process:

Six in Schools has created ready-made lesson plans that empower teachers and students to turn their Six-Word Memoirs into a classroom book. This book creation process is free to participants, and every classroom that designs a book receives one complimentary copy. Our only request is that teachers give parents the opportunity to buy a copy of the classroom book by passing along an online purchase link.

At times, teachers and administrators have inquired about the possibility of making a bulk book purchase so that every student can receive their own copy of their published book. Our team is happy to facilitate these purchases. If you’re interested, email Tyler:
