:: memo ::
in eighth grade i had this english teacher. one of those teachers who transforms your world view. a teacher who has you reading and loving and, gasp!, understanding shakespeare when it's not on the curriculum until ninth grade when your much blander teacher will give you the watered down, translated version of romeo juliet that you will listen to on tape and thoroughly despise.
one of the most memorable projects from english with this dream teacher was the poetry project, and one of the most memorable elements from the poetry project was the memo poem.
it was a poem in the form of a memo written to all of the things we were thankful for.
so today, in honor of (american) thanksgiving, my gift to you is a memo poem printable (the pdf file prints 3 memos to a page, each memo is about 3" by 7"). download it, print it out and have everyone fill one out at dinner. or use it as a thank you note throughout the year! whatever you do with it, i hope you enjoy it.
and know that i'm thankful for you.
