Students pair up and interview each other about their lives. Then they create a timeline of 5 major events in their partner's life. Students take all of the information they learned and write an 8 paragraph essay. Included is a concept web to help students get organized for the essay. Some of the questions asked are: What is your family like? What is the most significant event that happened in your life? What will you be doing in 10, 20, 50 years...? This is an excellent way to help students write a biography without having to spend weeks reading a biography first.
