Genre Lesson: Biography/Autobiography

Practice distinguishing biography from autobiography through point of view. Tell a brief story of your morning. Have a class member retell the story to you (using second person). And have another retell the story to the class (using third person). A creative opener leads into reading a couple of short passages in which you guide learners to identify biography and autobiography via point of view. Integrates study of Latin roots. You have open access to the lesson plan, but must register for a free account at Readworks.org to get the support materials.
