This project is one that I have spent a long time putting together. As an eighth grade teacher, I knew I wanted my students to end their middle school career with something like a portfolio; but I wanted it to have a more personal touch. I spent each month analyzing literary themes and writing styles to create unique, creative projects to be used as Autobiography Entries. The result is this final autobiography project.

My goal was for students to complete one entry each month. After I returned their final copy, they would hold on to it (I provided folders that they were allowed to leave in the classroom so they wouldn't get lost) and at the end of the year they compiled all of these into a book.

While I originally created this for my 8th grade language arts class, I have altered some entries for this product so it can be applied to a variety of grade levels, and does not require previous reading of any texts in order to be used. This product is offered in Mircosoft Word and is fully editable.

Included in the Product:

Overview - This describes the concept behind the project and includes a list of all entries

9 Monthly Projects - Each month includes a description of the project and a rubric for assessing. Nearly all rubrics are Common Core aligned, and almost all include an example of a finished project

(Months covered: Sept., Oct., Nov., Dec., Jan., Feb., Mar., Apr., May)
