A rigorous, scaffolded, clear cut biography report that will have your students researching and writing about the life of any person you choose! They will then culminate the biography with a fun project where they create a magazine on Google Slides or Power Point likeness of the biography subject!
Your students will first go through the complete writing process, with a great deal of scaffolding found in the form of Prewriting Graphic Organizers. Students will write their rough draft, then piece it all together to write a final draft.
After, the students will then create a "magazine", on Google Slides or Power Point, detailing the life of the biographical subject with their biography writing and pictures formatted to look like a real magazine!
Both the Biography and the Magazine have rubrics. There are also checklists and graphic organizers to help the students be successful with this project. Detail instructions are also written on the magazine slides themselves to there is no question as to what the students need to do for this project.
Everything is suitable to run off and give to the students, with no need to cut and paste or make alterations.
