This is a Biography Activity Template. This is a member of about 55 other activity templates that are based on the Multiple Intelligence Theory. This template uses the following multiple intelligences: linguistic, interpersonal or intrapersonal. This template was designed as a cooperative learning activity for middle school but if you want the students to work individually, you can delete step one which states the student roles.
It starts off like all of the others in the series with students choosing roles: writer, reader, taskmaster and timekeeper. It then goes onto remind the students to read the rubric. There is a short simplified explanation of what a biography is. You will need to input who the biography is about as well as the content you want your students to use. Finally, it reminds the students to revise their writing. There are appropriate time limits for each step to help keep the students focused and move them along. A rubric is provided to help you grade.
