  • Then we read “The Best Gift of My Life” and did this Guided Reading with it
  • After that, I had everyone write the paragraphs:
    1. “The Best Gift of My Life” is part of an autobiography; therefore, it is probably biased. In a paragraph, prove that this autobiography is biased.
    2. How would this quote be different if this selection was a biography instead?
    3. The idea behind this memoir is to show the perspective of how a writer comes to be a writer. In a paragraph, show how the entire story would be different if it was a biography instead.
