Have you ever wanted students to have a keepsake piece of writing? A literature biography enables your students to write a personal narrative of their life through the books they have read.
This tremendously popular assignment has been tucked into yearbooks, given as gifts and shared with grandmothers. Students reflect on the books that made an impact on their lives and write a chronological accounting of their experiences.
Included in the lesson are directions, some ideas to make the lit bio digital, a direction sheet, a rubric, two student model lit bios and a teacher model.
