First of all, thank you for you for purchasing my “Write Your Own Autobiography or Biography” resource! It took hours and hours of handwork to create this item, but I would do it all over again!
This product includes:
1) A "smart card" with:*
a) Differences between Autobiographies and Biographies.
b) The morphology for each genre.
c) The definition of each genre.
d) Writing instructions.
2) A lined responses sheet.
3) A sample biography and autobiography.
4) A rubric.
*This smart card was created to maximize each printed page!
If you are a teacher in Texas, this product covers this portion of the TEK 5.7:
Students understand, make inferences and draw conclusions about the varied structural patterns and features of literary nonfiction and provide evidence from text to support their understanding. Students are expected to identify the literary language and devices used in biographies and autobiographies, including how authors present major events in a person's life.
This product does not delve into literary language or devices, it’s geared towards students understand what both genres are by seeing if they can write their own. I’ve used this product to gauge my student’s understanding prior to a new lesson, as a station, and with students who have no working knowledge of either concept.
Thank you for buying!
