    • Autobiography Writing about self “I see but one rule: to be clear…” Stendhal
    • A Chapter of Your Life
      • Telling stories about key events in your life and describing people who played important roles can be a dynamic learning experience.
    • Engage
      • Evoking a vivid impression means using showing techniques.
    • Revisit your Past
      • Immerse yourself in the sights, sounds, and other sensations of memory.
    • The Meaning of Your Experience
      • Understanding and stating the meaning of your experience is an important part of writing a quality Autobiography.
      • Think deeply about the significance to you and the outside world and state it.
    • Reading Peer’s Essays
      • As you read and give feedback to your peer’s essay, you learn to deepen your knowledge of each genre.
      • Notice similarities and differences.
      • Differences can be far more thought-provoking than similarities.
    • A Public Experience
      • Remember, that writing an autobiography is a public experience, not a private one.
      • Choose a topic you are comfortable sharing.
      • Do not write unwanted self-disclosures.
    • Writers Reveal
      • Remember, each thing you write reveals something else about you—to yourself and to your readers.
      • After writing, always ask yourself: What have I learned about myself in writing this piece and going through this process?
    • Fashioning Self
      • Writers create ‘self’ with their words.
      • It can be a very powerful experience.
      • Think about how you want to portray yourself.
    • A fine focus
      • The best Autobiographies will focus on a single event or individual.
      • You will both narrate your story and use specific details to engage your reader.
    • Purpose
      • Through a careful choice of words and details, convey the meaning and importance in your life—the autobiographical significance—of this event or person.
    • Text Models: Using Reader Response Theory
      • Use the models in your textbook to empower your writing skills.
      • Learning to read as a writer is important.
      • Answer all 3 Questions of Reader Response Theory, noting what makes the essays work or not work for you.
    • And remember this quote…
      • “ Words are to be taken seriously…Words set things in motion.” … Toni Cade Bambara.
