Investigating Biographies (word doc)
Biography Hash / Bio Stew
This learning experience is part of a learning unit titled, Investigating Biographies. Through book talks by the library teacher, students will learn and discuss what makes a person famous. The students will find and become familiar with the biography section of the library. A culminating activity called “Bio Stew” will help the students internalize the organization of different biographies.
The teacher will be wearing a white chefs hat, an apron, and holding a wooden spoon as the students enter the library. There will be many questions asked by the students as they enter the library.

Summarizing information is an important postreading and prewriting activity that helps students synthesize what they have learned.
This tool allows students to develop an outline of a person whose biography or autobiography they have just read; it can also be used before students write their own autobiography. Specific prompts ask students to describe a person’s significance, background, and personality.
The finished printout can be folded into a fun cube shape that can be used for future reference.

Distinguished Women of Past and Present

Distinguished Women of Past and Present
This site has biographies of women who contributed to our culture in many different ways. There are writers, educators, scientists, heads of state, politicians, civil rights crusaders, artists, entertainers, and others. Some were alive hundreds of years ago and some are living today. We've heard of some of them, while many more have been ignored by history book writers. I'd like to acknowledge as many as I can.
