Help students realize how fascinating research can be by giving them nonthreatening paragraph frames that make research projects easy to do and enjoyable to present.

“Research” has been identified by the CCSS as one of the essential reading/writing skills for succeeding in college and the workplace. So why not take a skill that has the potential to be uninteresting and have some fun with it instead?

Biography Research Frames is a unit that contains 43 illustrated paragraph frames and several versions of blank frames which will give students both the freedom and the structure to locate and log information about some of the most fascinating people who have ever lived.
