This lesson has two parts: one page of comprehension questions, and a project that correlates to the book. The project asks the students to write 10 Biographical statements about themselves, just like Paul Zindel does in the story. It's a great way to practice varied sentence structure, word choice, and voice. It also requires that they think about different ways to begin sentences (instead of just "I").
I have found that this is a great story to read at the beginning of the year, because the 10 Biographical Points is a great way for students share about themselves.
If you would like the Microsoft Word version to make changes, send me a QUESTION with your email, and I will get it to you.
I have another project that has a slightly different spin called "My Life in Numbers"
