Students in various grade levels enjoy telling others about themselves by writing biopoems. This template was designed for students with learning differences, but could be used with any group of students in the middle school or high school. I simply took the traditional biopoem format and added lines and spaces to make it manageable. No bells or whistles, just a simple template. Use as a first-day of school activity or introductory activity for a poetry unit. When I do this activity, I write my own and use it to introduce myself to the class. Then I have students write their own and present them to the class.
