Lesson Plan

Magic, Sass, and Rage

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

Students are introduced to the characteristics of autobiographies. In groups, they read Maya Angelou's "I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings" and develop their own rules for survival in the classroom. They bring in family photos in an attempt to start writing their own autobiography. To end the lesson, they read a poem and use their own experiences to relate to it.
