Instructional Ideas

  • At the beginning of the year, have learners interview one another, using this page to take notes for a more fully developed biography
  • Ask learners to talk with a parent, guardian, grandparent, or neighbor and fill out their biographical information
  • Provide a biography template that learners can use after recording information on this page
Classroom Considerations

  • While you might be able to adapt this for a biography of a historical or literary figure, some of the topics have more to do with personality than accomplishments
Pros

  • The resource could be used for a biography of just about anyone your kids can talk to
Cons

  • There isn't much to this resource; you'll likely want or need to supplement the organizer with a more detailed writing assignment
