See the entire scaffolded autobiography unit by downloading the preview. This autobiography was featured in the TpT newsletter. Additionally, my students consistently vote this their most favorite writing unit of the year.
This is a complete nonfiction writing unit in an easy-to-use scaffolded format. Scaffolding information successfully supports all learners. It is the sequencing of content, materials, and tasks. All terms are defined. Simply move through the materials, with students, bit-by-bit as time allows. Best of all, once students are directed through the resource packet, they work on the final draft mostly independently.
Begin by reading a chapter from 26 FAIRMOUNT AVENUE - an autobiography written by Tomie DePaola - or any engaging autobiography.
The student resource packet includes:
An anchor chart.
An optional cover for student resources.
Autobiography clearly defined.
A lengthy list of possible subtopics (chapters).
Drafting subtopics, an introduction, 5 chapters, and a conclusion.
Drafting WOW chapter titles.
A draft glossary.
A text features reference chart.
Detailed revision and editing directions.
The final autobiography packet includes:
A title page with directions.
A table of contents page.
An introduction with illustration.
Five chapters with illustration.
A conclusion with illustration.
A final draft glossary.
Extra pages for lengthening chapters.
Learning targets are included to guide young writers. This unit is aligned to the CCSS, easily allows for differentiation, and it's loads of fun.
