How to use:
Getting Started: If your school has a library, it is bound to have a great biography section. You can also find many titles at your local library. Local libraries usually let teachers check out more books than an average member so check out the rules where you live. Once you’ve found suitable books (or websites, e-books, etc) organize them by categories. I have set categories in the printables, but you can also edit yours with the link provided.
This is a growing resource with writing components (including a "challenge ladder" and narrative writing) coming!
