  1. Autobiography vs. Biography What are the characteristics of a biography and an autobiography?

  2. Daily Objective • SPI 0701.8.3 Distinguish among different genres using their distinguishing characteristics.

  3. Essential Questions • What are the characteristics of autobiographies and biographies?

  4. Set • We will be looking at two readings. • They are both very similar, but they are both different as well. • Be on the look out for the difference.

  5. READING 1 Set Aunt Cindy was a big part of Jane’s childhood. Jane and her parents visited Aunt Cindy at least once a month. She remembers many visits to Aunt Cindy’s tiny, dark apartment. It was very quiet in that building– maybe because tenants were not allowed to have children or pets. In spite of that, Aunt Cindy found a way to express her love for animals; she spent days working at an animal shelter near her home, and scouting out alleyways for strays and finding them homes.

  6. READING 2 Set Aunt Cindy was a big part of my childhood. My parents and I visited her at least once a month. I remember many visits to Aunt Cindy’s tiny, dark apartment. It was very quiet in that building– maybe because tenants were not allowed to have children or pets. In spite of that, my Aunt Cindy found a way to express her love for animals; she spent days working at an animal shelter near her home, and scouting out alleyways for strays and finding them homes.

  7. Set • Think: How are the two readings alike and how are they different? • Pair: Turn to the person next to you and share the ways that the two readings are alike and different. • Share: Volunteers to share with the class.

  8. Autobiography • The main character is the author • Recounts the key incidents in the writer’s life • Written in first person point of view. • Reveals the writer’s feelings, reactions, values, and goals

  14. Fact vs. Opinion • Fact: something that can be proved to be true • Opinion: thoughts or feelings • To check for opinions, ask yourself, • “Does this tell a thought or feeling?” • “Would the statement be true all of the time?” • Look for clue words such as : feel, believe, always, never, none, most, least, best, and worst
