Students will learn the elements of biography stories and will write a biography about a favorite person! This 4-week class includes a weekly 35-minute Zoom call, Google Classroom materials, & personal feedback.
Class Description: Biography Writing Class for Kids
🔎 Lesson 1: A Day In the Life!
Students will learn the elements of biography stories and identify them in sample biographies from Scholastic. Choose a person to write about.
🤩 Lesson 2: Changing the World
We will read aloud part of a biography in the Ordinary People Change the World book series (for grades K-3). Students will learn how to use books and websites to conduct research and answer guiding questions.
👍 Lesson 3: A Short Bio
Students will transform their answers from Lesson 2 into a short one-paragraph biography. We will read Whoosh! Lonnie Johnson’s Super-Soaking Stream of Inventions (for ages 6-10) or another high-interest biography.
📚 Lesson 4: Make a Bibliography
Students will create a bibliography to show their sources. We will practice general editing techniques, including writing complete sentences with correct punctuation.
I have 25 years of writing and editing experience, and five years as a writing instructor.
