Alignment to core standards is addressed, essential questions are asked, and direct and indirect evidence is required to demonstrate knowledge of memoir. Seven days of lessons are included along with graphic organizers and directions. Students work in groups and independently. A variety of leveled texts are suggested to accommodate reading levels of a variety of students and facilitate differentiation of instruction. While directions for the actual writing of memoir is not explicit, all the background information building to that assignment is provided. Although it is stated that, “Assessments are provided that follow this unit. Students will go through the writing process to produce a published memoir,” it cannot be found in this resource.
