Who can use it? Any student, any age, with a special benefit for reluctant readers, writers, or workers. What’s included? A step-by-step guide for students, a list of materials, explanation for the activity, and an example. Why is this useful? This is a fun twist on traditional biography reports that can be assigned in history, social studies, ELA, or writing classes.
