Miss sardo s example nik s biography to autobiography

Miss Sardo’s example:Nik’s Biography to Autobiography

Biography:

Nik strolled back onto the dance floor swaying to the loud and energizing rap music. He wore a white button down shirt that looked as if he had just jumped into a pool. It was apparent that all of the dancing was making him very hot.

He had a huge smile on his face and grabbed one of his friends who was sitting at a table eating dessert to come join him. It was evident that he was having a great time at the wedding because of his friendly smile

(and wet shirt ) that had told it all.

Autobiography:

I strutted back onto the dance floor as I swayed my body back and forth. I loved the DJ’s choice of music, especially this new rap song! The beat was bumping and vibrating in my ears, but I didn’t care, this was one of the greatest dancing songs ever!

Even though my shirt was sticking to my body, I didn’t mind. I was having such a wonderful time. I called over to all of my friends who were sitting at our table eating wedding cake. I grabbed my girlfriend Allie by the hand to come to the dance floor and dance the remainder of the night away with me. I was smiling, laughing and obviously sweating. I felt so happy and joyful to be around all of my closest family and friends.

What’s the difference between these two?

Underline the obvious…

Take notes on major and even minor differences
