Reflection: Gradual Release Who Are These People, and Can They be Compared? - Section 3: Closure


I like the idea of the kids following this activity with the writing of their own detailed autobiography, but chose not to include it as a major part in this lesson.  Starting with the book jackets is a great way to involve them in the process, have fun creating a great title.  We've done a LOT of writing recently, and this lesson fell at a time when they needed a break.  I look forward to returning to the concept in the future, although they did write mini-autobiographies inside the book jacket.
