Developed for a high school quinmester unit on comparative biography, this guide provides the teacher with strategies to aid students in examining biography from "Plutarch's Lives" and Cellini's "Autobiography" to Nabokoc's "Speak, Memory." Special emphasis is placed on comparison of biographies of the same person and the distribution between autobiography and biography. Performance objectives are listed along with a rationale for the course and its content. A section entitled "Teaching Strategies" includes suggestions for exercises and directions for completing them. The guide concludes with a list of student and teacher resources, including state-adopted textbooks, supplementary reading materials, and films. (RB)
