This document includes all you need (including a rubric!) for a 5 day lesson in writing to support your reading standard (comparing text/identifying text features/non-fiction writing).
Students will brainstorm, create a bag of artifacts and go through the steps of the writing process to create their own autobiography.
After completing this lesson, be sure to download the Biography lesson. After students complete their autobiographies, they are asked to share their Autobiography artifact bags with a partner. The partners will "interview" each other and then write a biography about their partner.
At the end of this 2 week assignment, student will present the biographies about their partners. They love it! I loved doing this with them, it's a rich, fun activity!
