Biography - How to structure a biography paragraph - Anne Frank - paragraph party

Biography - How to structure a biography paragraph - Anne Frank - paragraph party

Working on biographies? Teach your class a simple structure for organising information within a paragraph. This activity supports both reading and writing skills. Assessment focus I can group information into paragraphs I can organise the sentences in my paragraph into a sensible order I have used this 'paragraph party' approach several times for information texts and persuasive texts, and it really helped children to improve how well their writing was organised. That's why I have developed a similar approach to use when tackling biographies. Children will learn a simple pattern and later on they can apply to their own writing. Using lots of constructive talk, children have to work together to organise different sections of Anne Frank's life. Children need to find the host of the party (the 'topic sentence') and throw out information not relevant (the 'uninvited guest'). Then they explore the subtle way information is ordered. Later on they can look at whole text structure too. Each paragraph follows the same pattern, and children can use this pattern themselves to support their writing.

WINTER Dobble

WINTER Dobble

This is my version of a popular game - Dobble. Dobble is a simple pattern recognition game in which players try to find an image shown on two cards. Each card in Dobble features eight different symbols, with the symbols varying in size from one card to the next. Any two cards have exactly one symbol in common. For the basic Spot it! game, reveal one card, then another. Whoever spots the symbol in common on both cards claims the first card, then another card is revealed for players to search, and so on. Whoever has collected the most cards when the 55-card deck runs out wins! I hope you find it useful. Please, leave a review I will be very grateful!

*** answer key included A listening comprehension for the movie Selma.

I also included a writing journal section which can be completed in class or at home. For the writing journal, students are asked to select and answer two of the proposed questions. You will also find an oral presentation project to get the students to acquire additional knowledge about the U.S. Civil Rights Movement. This way the movie becomes an excellent pre-activity to a broader learning opportunity for students. Note: My personal way of using the oral presentation project is that I get students in pairs to work on the project and present to the rest of the class. I ask students to take notes because afterwards I give them a quiz on everything which was presented… not necessarily for a final “official” grade but a final “unofficial” assessment of who has acquired the most knowledge… students love the challenge of trying to beat their classmates and no stress about it showing up on their report card… I usually give a few bonus points to my first three pairs who got the most correct answers on the final quiz.

Zimbabwe after Mugabe

Zimbabwe after Mugabe

Today, let’s talk about Zimbabwe. It’s a country in southern Africa. For the last 37 years Zimbabwe has been led by President Robert Mugabe. On Tuesday, 93 year old Mugabe finally resigned, bringing an end to his ruthless rule. Following the news, there was wild jubilation on the streets of Harare, the county’s capital. Zimbabweans could hardly believe that finally they were free from the man that the majority of people in the country detested. Mugabe only resigned because he was about to be impeached. Two days earlier he was thrown out of the ruling party ZANU-PF and dismissed as its leader. His wife Grace Mugabe was also expelled from the party and is facing prosecution.
