Reflection: Checks for Understanding Biographies: My Autobiography - Section 3: Autobiography Rough Draft


Having the students include at least 3 text features in their writing was a great way for me to check for understanding.  There were several students who had no clue what I was asking of them.  It was a great way to reteach text features and help them better understand what they are.  It was also fun to see which features the students chose to add to their work.  :)
