Instructional Ideas

  • Build this into a unit on biography and autobiography in which learners read some examples and then write their own
  • Use the first page independently
Classroom Considerations

  • The resource only provides the initial brainstorm page for an autobiography, and you'll likely want to add in more scaffolding and preparation for this writing assignment
Pros

  • Comes with the two excerpts for examination as well as accompanying short answer questions
  • A graphic organizer is provided for the brainstorming activity
Cons

  • Answers for the short answer portion are not included
