Goal

This project will encourage students to understand, commit, and be passionate about the writing process. It will allow students to experience a final writing product within the genre of biography. Each student will have the opportunity to interview, research, write,edit, revise, and publish a biography about someone they know who has influenced their lives or an autobiography based on their own life.  

 

What will be done with my students

Students will have a launch into excitement about the writing process by meeting an amazing local author, Margaret Cardillo. She is well known for her works, Just Being Audrey, and Just Being Jackie. Students will be able to learn the process that is followed by compiling information and the process for writing an account of a person's life. A question and answer session will allow students to connect their learning to a project which they will embark upon.  

 

Benefits to my students

The classes will have the opportunity to be taught how the writing process takes place. They will realize the perseverance and the time frame necessary to take an idea through the writing process to completion. Students in four Cambridge classes (grades 3, 4 and 5) will benefit from this exciting experience.
