You will get 8 one page biography pages with reading focuses for each read, a recording sheet for close read focusing, an extending learning tic-tac-toe choice board, and a one page biography report. Additionally, there is a bonus idea for using information in other ways to help integrate social studies learning.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE EACH BIOGRAPHY?
Each biography is only one page long (please look at the preview). The biographies that are provided are an overview biography. This was done, so students could research individuals in more depth in order to complete the tasks in the tic-tac-toe choice boards. This allows for the integration of more learning - reading, comprehension, text features, research, social studies skills, etc. On each biography page is a clipart drawing of the individual. These are drawings and not photographs.
WHAT SKILLS WILL MY STUDENTS PRACTICE?
For each biography, students will be expected to read it 5 times - each time with a different focus. (More advanced readers may be able to combine readings/skill focuses - you're the expert, you should make that choice)
- initial thoughts and questioning the text
- main idea and details
- Author's Craft and Text Features
- make a connection
- thinking deeper about the passage
