A biography, in its simplest terms, is the story of another person's life, as told by another individual. An autobiography is the story of another person's life as recorded or written by that specific individual.
Here at Wake Up Sunshine, this simple and affordable guide will allow students to break apart and diagnose different elements of any biographical book they choose to investigate. The lesson guide utilizes various graphic organizers and manners of investigation to dig deeper into the format of a biography; and the story of their chosen individual's life.
