Assignments 11/11

English 9:

  • We did a warm-up
  • Then I explained again the subtle differences between biography and autobiography
  • Then we took a quiz on “When I Lay My Burden Down”
  • Then we wrote three paragraphs:
    1. “When I Lay My Burden Down” 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 a ten-year-old black girl during Jim Crow. In a paragraph, show how the entire story would be different if it was a biography instead.
