This Word document gives you all you need to have your students write interesting, detailed, meaningful autobiographical accounts / memoirs. Included is:
-a brief introduction to teaching an Autobiographical Incident,
-a step-by-step assignment/instruction sheet (with checkboxes for each task) that you can give to students,
-a rubric (with categories for Structure, Process, Description, Spelling and Grammar),
-three suggested mini-lessons (Autobiography defined, Theme, Introductions) with explanations,
-a suggested partner listening/speaking activity (a handout of questions partners can use to interview each other about the incident),
-and a mentor text with questions.
The document is purposefully in Word so that you can tweak the instructions and/or rubric to fit your students' needs. Perfect for use in a writing workshop or as a single writing assignment. Also great as a ELL/ESL/EFL writing lesson; it can be easily differentiated.
