Senior Memory Book During this term you will write your senior memory book consisting of memories and thoughts from your whole life. It will be due toward the end of the 4th quarter, but you must begin now and work on it for the remainder of this term in order to complete it on time without rushing. The final project can be presented in several ways. Some students make it a scrapbook project, others use a 3 ring binder, and some have even used video. GRADING: If your senior memory book is complete and shows creativity and thought, your grade will be no less than a 75%. The more thorough and the more creative you are in decorating your book, pages, and sections with drawings, pictures, photographs, and stuff cut out of magazines or newspapers or brochures, the higher your grade will be. Any book that does not contain all 15 chapters will receive a lower grade, regardless of how fancy it is. Any book that is a bunch of “junk” will not receive a grade. Any book handed in late will receive a D. Your senior memory book must include the following 5 chapters (some flexibility is allowed). Chapter 1: Who Am I? (Who are you? Where do you live?
