Whether you are planning for a biography/autobiography genre study, book clubs (literature circles), or independent reading program, this packet will challenge your students! They will summarize and analyze nonfiction literary elements by using critical thinking skills and citing textual evidence. The standards-based questions are open-ended enough to use with a variety of middle school books.
Response prompts are provided in two formats: ten whole page worksheets for distribution one day at a time, or a packet to be folded and stapled into a fourth-page student booklet. Either way, two weeks worth of reading response questions are included.
Biography - Autobiography Genre tasks include:
★ Analyze character traits
★ Generate questions
★ Evaluate the character
★ Analyze a significant quote
★ Describe influences on the character
★ Compare individuals
★ Identify significant dates
★ Compare information from multiple sources
★ Summarize the text (each day)
