Here are a few photos of your work on your snapshot autobiography from class on Thursday and Friday. Most of you nearly finished in class. Finish them before class on Monday and Tuesday and be prepared to share them with your classmates. Review the expectations and rubric that has been emailed to you and also shared on PowerSchool. Out of Eden Learn begins next week! More details will be provided in class.

Snapshot Autobiography

11 Sep

We have been working hard on writing narratives to describe three turning points in our own personal history. We have defined a turning point and you have brainstormed memorable events in your life. Each event must include a claim, evidence, and reasoning to support why this turning point was so important in your life. You must also include a timeline (drawn to scale) and an ‘About the Author’ section on the back.

I have created a model to describe three turning points in my life. This week we will revise our writing and ensure that the who, what, where, when and why are answered with sufficient details. You will also work on creating your brochure that will also include illustrations and a title. We are excited to see your finished product!
