ELA B10 June 20/16 Sample Obituaries for your Obit Writing

You know you’re tasked with writing an Obituary celebrating a character’s life from the play Macbeth. To get an idea of what this type/form of writing is like, here is a website with a collection of unique Obituaries. Read them to get a sense of:

  • tone
  • how each celebrates the deceased in some way
  • quirky elements – the uniqueness of each is mentioned
  • loss
  • one sample tries to find meaning in a tragic loss of a son to suicide – it’s worth skimming for ideas (tragic loss of many in Macbeth)

Here’s the link to the web page.
