What is the author's purpose for sharing an autobiography? Start this lesson with the short story provided about getting pulled over by a police officer. Then, discuss the acronym PIES and how it stands for the four main reasons an author would tell a story. Then dive into some reading about Rosa Parks. As a class, create a chart to decide why Rosa tells a specific story in her autobiography. Finally, learners complete an assignment independently. This lesson reflects the popular "I do, we do, you do" model.
