The following worksheet is an explanation and review on the differences between autobiographies, biographies, and memoirs that I've used as a pre-reading activity before beginning a memoir with my students (e.g. "This Boy's Life"). It encourages them to think about the benefits and disadvantages of each of these genres. A couple questions have them write down whether a work is an autobiography, biography, or memoir based on the information given on the work. The remaining questions ask them to simply answer them and include, for example, which genre would students want written about them? Why? Enjoy!
