My students LOVE making little books (often for comics) so I figured why not turn Biography Writing into booklet form too?!
I’ve created several versions to help you differentiate for students of varying writing abilities. When you download this, have a scroll through to pick out what’ll work best for your students! Watch a preview video of this resource on Vimeo!
This resource contains 97 pages with multiple versions:
Year 1-2 booklet (8 pages x4 versions with sentence starter prompts)
Year 3-4 booklet (8 pages x2 versions)
Year 5-6 booklet (10 pages x1 version)
Year 7-8 booklet (12 pages x2 versions)
Biography Writing is great fun in that students get the opportunity to research a significant person of interest or influence. The trouble is that Biography Writing tends to get quite research-heavy. That's why it's important to make the recording of facts and writing up of information fun and achievable!
Using booklets gives students ownership of their writing and chunks the task into manageable bite-sized sections. And of course, the chance to colour in and add illustrations! You can even turn it into a group project by divvying up the pages amongst group members before securing them together into a full booklet!
I recommend printing out two pages per A4 sheet to make A5-sized booklets. Trim off any excess paper around the border before stapling or hole-punching and securing the pages together.
Let me know how your students get on with it! Happy writing!
