This packet is for students in grades six through eight.
It gives students background information on writing biographies (in narrative form). This packet is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and includes the standards for grades seven and eight, an essay assignment, a list of essential questions, a note sheet on the topic, an activity on how to avoid author bias, helpful writing hints, and the approved CC narrative writing rubric.
This can be done in class with peers or the teacher as the lead, it can be worked on with substitute teachers, or it can be modified to fit into a bigger unit.
I have attached a PDF version for the font to stay the same, but if you would like to edit your own copy please contact me and I will be happy to send you the word document.
