BIOGRAPHY: a detailed description or account of a person's life. Directions: By yourself or in a partnership, use the link on my website called BIOGRAPHY to find a famous person you want to learn more about. Some ideas to spark your brain: former presidents, activists, inventors, actors, musicians, artists, business leaders, athletes, authors, and explorers… Once you’ve chosen the person, do some research about his/her life. Then, in your own words, write a 1-page biography (12-14pt fonts). Then include a collage of photos on a separate page that describes and relates to this person’s life. **Include a bibliography of websites that you used to research this person. **If you are working with a partner, divide the responsibilities. Take turns researching and typing. **You can have multiple font colors, but avoid light colors that are difficult to read. These are the items you must include in the biography: Person’s name Birth date Death date (if applicable) Place where they were born/grew up (country, state, city, town...) Background information (early childhood, family info, education, jobs, training…) Personality traits (how would this person be described by others) Obstacles/struggles (difficult times in this person’s life) Achievements/accomplishments How do this person’s accomplishments make an impact on others?
