Confessions of a Berlitz-Tape Chicana and House Built on Ashes are a form of literatureknown as memoir. A memoir is similar to an autobiography in that it is based on theauthor’s life experiences and told in the first person. However, while an autobiography tellsthe story of the life of the writer, the memoir tells “a story ‘from a life’”(Wikipedia). That is,in the memoir, the theme(s) and message(s) direct the story; the memories shared aretrying to develop a specific theme or message. Your assignment for this option is to writethree entries (chapters) of your memoir. Your entries should be three memories/personalstories that try to develop one or two themes. They should zoom in on a specific day oroccurrence that is representative or symbolizes something bigger and fits within a theme.The themes should be related to the concerns of the course — culture, identity, ancestry,discrimination, feeling of isolation, questions of ‘belonging,’ importance of history, etc. –but from your perspective. Basically, you should use Confessions and House Built on Ashesas models for your assignment. Your three entries should be at least 225 words each. Youcan type them all in one document but provide a separate title for each one. Below is theWikipedia definition of memoir for additional use. Make sure your entries are well-edited.

WIKIPEDIA ENTRY ON MEMOIR: A memoir (US: /ˈmemwɑːr/;[1] from French: mémoire: memoria, meaning memory or reminiscence) is a collection of memories that an individual writes about moments or events, both public or private, that took place in the subject’s/person’s life.[2][3] The assertions made in the work are understood to be factual. While memoir has historically been defined as a subcategory of biography or autobiography since the late 20th century, the genre is differentiated in form, presenting a narrowed focus. A biography or autobiography tells the story “of a life”, while a memoir often tells a story “from a life”, such as touchstone events and turning points from the author’s life.
