Help biographies come alive for students with this creative reading project in which students create the liner notes for a CD soundtrack. The project includes a CD cover, a dedication to special people, lyrics to a theme song, and a song list of 10 titles that show the ups and downs of the person's life journey. The "Biographical CD Soundtrack" guides students to reflect on an enjoyable biographical reading experience while focusing on the journey, including the trials and tribulations, of a real person.
Your class will have step-by-step directions on how to successfully accomplish the project. In addition, a real-life student model of the "Biographical CD Soundtrack" accompanies the download. This will reduce the number of student "how to" questions by focusing their efforts on retelling the amazing life story featured in their biography.
