Autobiography

Autobiography

The autobiography is an idea I got in 1997 from reading an article from Dear Abby and collaborating with my mother on an assignment I could use for this class during "down time." A favorite theme I have heard from returning alumni is "I remember when." I also like to reminisce from time to time, and realize how much I have forgotten from high school. The autobiography will not only be a graded project, but will also give students something in which to contain their memories for future perusal.
 
Every Monday of a full week of school, we work on our autobiographies. Entries currently include:
1. A timeline from birth to current day
2. A drawn, painted, colored, etc. timeline (on colored paper)
3. An interview done in class with a partner
4. Favorite Firsts (2 sentences for 14 favorite firsts I have written down)
5. Favorite Firsts (an essay about one of their favorite firsts or most memorable moment)
6. After School Essay (what they do to fill up time after they go home from school)
7. Mirror Image (a packet of 6 sheets, front to back -- all about them)
8. Friends (an essay about their friends)
9. When You Were Little ( an essay of their first memory, or most important memory)
10. Mystery Person (a written essay about the person in the room whose name they draw out of a basket)
11. Must include pictures, certificates, letters, notes, drawings, or any other extra's for extra credit
 
*If you have other ideas, email them to me and they might be included in a future autobiography!!!!!!
