Lesson Plan 1 Title – Ben Franklin’s Autobiography By - Tina Marie Tedeschi Subject - Social Studies, Language Arts Grade Level - high school After reading Ben Franklin's Autobiography and discussing his list of virtues to achieve perfection, I had my class develop its own list of virtues for the 21st century.
