This lesson is meant to play with the genre of autobiography. It introduces two types of autobiography (reflective and factual) and asks the students to compare and contrast them. Students prepare to write their own autobiography, in the style they prefer. This is a modification of a lesson plan originally created for an intermediate-level Spanish course by Frances Matos Schulz, Jun Takahira, Yoko Hama, Camille Braun, Olga Salazar Pozos, and myself.

The students will create a woven scrapbook exploring and weaving different genres: poetry, narrative, expository/informative and argumentative/persuasive. In preparation for the book students will need to address literacy, rights and self advocacy. This lesson will pull into current events in the local community and make connections to global scale. As an extension teachers can digitize pieces from the individual books and tie into a longer documentary piece.
