Six-Word Memoirs: This assignment is in tandem with the website: Six Word Memoirs. As this class addresses communication, this website is an excellent partner for this assignment.

You will have at least 6-8+ slides with narration. Each of the 6-word memoirs you have collected will be explained in a separate slide. Your slides should:
Slide by Slide Instruction:
Slide 1: Start with a proper introduction to your video slideshow. Your introduction introduce the topic (Six Word Memoirs) and what you will be addressing in the slideshow (info about program/website, the 6 word memoirs of friends and family, etc).
Slide 2: Provide information about the 6-Word beginnings—who started the program? When was it started? What is the history of this program? . Also, provide detailed information about the website and purpose. Do not use any video or audio from the “Six Word Memoir” links.
Slides 3-7: Create a slide that has the name of the person you interviewed, their relationship to you and the “six-word memoir”. If you use a reference from the textbook, include that in the slide as well. Textbook references should be connected to the 6 word memoirs (your and the 4 you collected).

[Do not use or paraphrase any part of this example in your slideshow].
Slide 8: Finish up your video slideshow with a proper conclusion.
