Auto biographies
 

I am looking for an autobiography with a worksheet for an intermediate reading class.

Can you help me?
 
(not a biography. I have plenty of these but I can not find an auto biography)

haven īt found a ws so far but I did find an autobiography by Thomas Mann http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/literature/laureates/1929/mann-autobio.html
If you are unable to find anything, at least you īll have something for your own ws.

Sophia and puddyd, you are both wonderful angels to respond so quickly.

I am so sorry to say that in my haste I forgot to specify that it must be approximately 450 words (350-550).  The excellent links you gave are over 1000 words and much to advanced for my classīs level.
 
I am not keen to abridge anything just yet and am  **hoping**  that someone somewhere will magically say here is one just right for you.  Hopefully this is not wishful thinking.

This one īs short, not sure if it īs still too long . 
You could do an autobiographical song like : Charlene īs -Never been to me or look here for a song 
Goodluck ;-)

Why not give half the class one half and the other half the other and ask them to read it in groups and explain to each other what they read?
