Reflection: Real World Applications Biographies: Illustrating Our Autobiographies - Section 4: Sharing Our Autobiographies


It is a school-wide tradition to have the students create holiday gifts for their parents.  A few years ago I decided that instead of wasting precious teaching time making tacky gifts that will likely end up in the trash within a week, I would instead have the students create a gift that would enhance their education as well as become a keepsake for the parents.  I have had many parents thank me for putting this project together for the students.  They love the autobiographies!    It also gives the students a purpose for their writing.  What a wonderful real world application!
