This is a bundled set of guided biographies for six amazing women: Clara Barton, Amelia Earhart, Helen Keller, Sacagawea, Mother Teresa, and Laura Ingalls Wilder. Each one of these is listed separately but you save more than a third of the cost when buying the bundled set.
Please check the preview on this listing (Mother Teresa, Amelia Earhart and Helen Keller) or in their separate listings (links below) or download the free guided biography of Galileo to get a better idea of what you will find in the guided biographies:
My Guided Biographies are designed to be used in several ways:
-- as a research activity that could be part of a larger project;
-- as a transition into writing an entirely student-created biography;
-- as an introduction to reading and evaluating informational text.
Students choose a biography on a subject and complete the biography study. While not all of the biographies will include all the information asked for, students can fill in the gaps using other books or the Internet.
Each guided biography includes:
A Table of Contents
A cover page for the student to fill out with their name and book title that looks very much like the teacher’s cover page
11 general questions about the biography the student is using
5 questions about the author of the biography
4 questions about the parts of the biography
1 page for recording 8 new vocabulary words
3 pages of “After Reading” questions that elicit both facts and opinion (*the Clara Barton guided biography has 4 pages of questions rather than 3 but otherwise follows the same format)
A timeline graphic organizer for the student to complete
A 2-page Teacher Guide which includes Common Core standard alignments for Grades 4-6 (Reading Informational Text)
Each product includes a detailed answer key for questions based on factual material.
