Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions! Perhaps in order not to go mad.
Or, on the contrary, to touch the bottom of madness. Having survived by chance, I am duty-bound to give meaning to my survival. Children write best when they write what they know. They know themselves the best of all. So, when we ask children to write, we should ask them to write about what is comfortable, themselves and their lives.
They can choose to write about what is safe to them in certain areas and explore deeper thought in others. The life lessons at the end of each letter tie the alphabiography together. In this matter, an alphabiography is like a memoir.
This would take a period of about three weeks.
Exposure to other memoirs would also occur through read alouds or through self-selection. Some choices would include: After sharing excerpts from some of these memoirs, we would classify the tone and voice of the author, so as to determine who our audience would be. Personal narratives would have been written earlier in the year, so we would distinguish between writing for different audiences.
Memoirs are a transition from the personal narrative. Whereas a personal narrative tells about a timeline of a certain event; the memoir tells about the significance and importance of the events to the writer. We figure out who we are, who we have become, and what it means to us and to the lives of others: It is a way to validate to others the events of our lives- our choices, perspectives, decisions, responses.
But the purpose of memoir is to explore the significance of those events. Regardless of the age, ability, or experience of the writer, the use of writing to generate thought is still valuable; therefore, forms of writing such as personal narrative, journals, written reflections, observations, and writing-to-learn strategies are important.
Students will develop and strengthen their tone and voice as writers through this activity. The overall timeline of this activity is a nine week period from introduction to publishing.
Remind them that the alphabiography should be in chronological order, so keep that in mind when brainstorming. For your modeling, write as the age your students are.
Share your finished product.
