Product Description

Writing is easier---and can be more enjoyable---when students are writing about what they know best: themselves! The Me You See is designed to introduce students to the art of writing descriptively while creating a finished autobiography. Both practice and autobiography pages are included, with prompts such as: arranging the student's life as a timeline, writing the five senses, a practice event page, a recipe to create "you," a fable from the student's life, how the student plans to change the word, and more. Students should work on one-to-two pages a week; a proofreading checklist is included for all writing assignments involving paragraphs. The final autobiography will have 28 pages. Pages are looseleaf and designed to be bound (not three-hole-punched) for a polished final product. Grades 3-8.

    I never would have thought to have my child write their autobiography- after all, he was only 9. What had he done? By the time he finished we had learned so much about writing and had been able to do it without either of us crying or fighting. And it turns out that he had a lot to say. Our favorite was his "Wanted Poster" descriptions of his family (like the old western villain posters about gunslingers). It's a wonderful keep sake we still look back on now that he is a teenager. I used it with my daughter too with the same results. It seems simple when you look at it and I thought is this too simple? But it really works. They prepare to write first by exploring descriptive words and learning to outline. Then they do the assignment, each one creative and unique with about 5 actual stories and many more creative ways to describe themselves and the people in their life. A nice alternative to some more traditional approaches, it was a fun project for our year.
