Themes of My Life. Includes over 240 prompts based on 50+ topics of your students' individual life values! Autobiography Notebook Journal for Language Arts, English, Creative Writing, Philosophy, Psychology, Social Studies, Sociology, Social Sciences, English, Language Arts.

This is a great Friday journal project, but is also a fantastic resource to keep your students writing at the end of the year as a condensed unit! This journal relaxed, but guided.

The goal of this project is for your students to dig deep into their personal experiences, belief system, and bring to the forefront what makes them unique. At the end of this unit, your students will have a collection of all the themes to their own personal story.
This unit has been created with over 50 different themes. Each topic has between 4 and 5 open ended questions.
Pick and choose the ones that will inspire your students. There is more than enough for an entire school year. This is a great ongoing project that can be added to daily, weekly, or as often as you see fit.

Some of the topics that students are asked to delve into include:

• Honesty

• Marriage

• Music

• Fear

• Kindness

• Generosity

• Money

• Uniqueness

• Forgiveness

• Love

• Sadness

• Education

• Laws

• Art/Music

• Fear

• Imagination

• Goals

• Emotion

• Math/Science/History

• Government

• Technology

• Crime

• Stress

• Anger

• Personal Fulfillment

• Personal Boundaries

• Secrets

• Mistakes

• Laughter

• Friends

• Reality TV

• War

• Celebrations

• Family

• Mortality

• Beauty

• Loyalty

Have your students organize their journals in a slim 3-ring binder as they may run out of space in a folder. Another option is to have each student answer the questions in their own composition book.
Instead of creating a format where students write directly on worksheets, I have created this unit for as little photo copying as possible. You can either project the questions on a front wall or copy the sheet of questions and have students write on their own paper. Whichever you do, have them rewrite the questions followed by their answer. This will allow extra space for those who like to elaborate their thoughts.
Encourage your students to be creative and to add relevant artwork, famous quotes, or poetry to their journal.
