Product Description
This common core aligned Biography Writing Unit has everything you’ll need to teach your students how to plan, write and edit a biography! The detailed lesson plans take you through each step of the teaching process; from the introduction, to publishing and assessment, there are handouts and graphic organizers to support you along the way. A choice of 2 teacher rubrics are included for your convenience: a quick checbric or a more detailed rubric using the six traits of writing.

**************************************************************************************************************************************************************************

In the unit, students choose an influential figure to research and write a biography about. They learn how to brainstorm, gather research, and organize their information into an essay format. Students learn how to write an effective introduction that will ‘hook’ their reader and to include only the most relevant information they gather in their biography. Students also complete a timeline as well as a poster that includes a picture of the individual and a memorable quote. These can be used as a cover page or can be posted on a bulletin board in your classroom!
