Who Am I?

eMints provides educators with a wide selection of standards based lesson plans (eThemes).

Here's one from Scholastic. "This lesson on memoir writing can be adapted for elementary students. Includes three suggested books that are examples of memoir writing."

What If? by A.H. Benjamin, 
When I Was Little  by Toyomi Igus 
Wilfred Gordon McDonald Partridge by Mem Fox

If students start young learning the difference between a memoir and an autobiography there will be less future Freys to worry about.
