Why Lesson Planet?
A reading of Carlos Sanchez’s Confessions of a Monolingual Americano, launches an investigation of how autobiographers use reflection and evaluation in a piece of writing.

Part of an autobiographical writing unit, the referenced Verb Agreement and Tense Explanation worksheets are not included.
