This is an in-depth assignment sheet and organizer. It is a reflective essay assignment that asks students to reflect on their lives about what events, people, and relationships have made them who they are. It works well in conjunction with studying texts by Henry David Thoreau, who calls people to examine their lives to determine who they have become. The assignment aligns to common core ELA standards in various ways, including taking students beyond the reading text to apply the content to modern day life, as well as many other ELA standards. It has been a meaningful assignment for students over the years. I hope you enjoy watching your students reflect on their lives!
