Curriculum Unit (pdf)


Writing your autobiography would be a huge task for anyone to handle, but what if you could write about significant or meaningful events in your life.  You chose those events and describe those events from your point of view.  This unit is designed to teach students with disabilities about memoirs.  Students will be exposed to several types of memoirs.  Students will compose their own memoirs.  Students will use photographs, picture symbols, and written words during this unit.
