Autobiography Tweet midterm

Select an English-language autobiography (written by the subject) of your choice.

As you read the autobiography, try to learn the voice of the person you’re reading about. What is distinctive about them?

Chose five moments from their autobiography and draft a notional Tweet about that moment. It does not have to be verbatim from their book, but the Tweet should tell us something about either the moment in which the subject lived, or something specific about their personality.

For example, if you chose to read the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass you might chose to tweet the moment he escaped from slavery, using his distinctive voice.

Follow the below steps for this assignment:

1. Chose your autobiography– only one student may be assigned an autobiography. Use the Biography Choice assignment on canvas to type in your three options by 3 February. This way, we can de-conflict everyone’s choices.

2. Read your autobiography– note the unique voice of your character and what moments they mention that you want to notionally have them Tweet. Draft your five Tweets.

3. Chose a photo of your subject.

4. Photoshop the image of your subject into a notional Tweet screen capture. Produce your five Tweets in photoshop, using the text you drafted during your reading.

5. Upload your photoshopped products here, combined into one PDF.

6. Finally, you will give a presentation your historical figure and present your work, explaining why you chose those moments. You can find the presentation as a seperate assignment in canvas.
