Reading – Biographies

What is a biography?

What do you already know about biographical writing. Below are some discussion starters:

• What does a biography tell us about a person?

• Where can you look to find information for your biographical writing? It could include the internet, newspaper articles, magazine articles and interviews, other biographies, historical books or television interviews. Why is it important to use more than one source of information?

• What makes a biography interesting? For example, key information and facts, a timeline of events, photographs, illustrations and quotes.

Your task today is to create your own biography about an Australian Woman using this template. Research any of the women featured in the BTN video or another of your own.

Some other possibilities of Australian women to research include: • Dame Roma Mitchell ©ABC 2020 • Catherine Helen Spence • Miles Franklin • Nancy Bird • Dame Nellie Melba • Quentin Bryce 

(Make this presentable, make a border, shade in some boxes, add an extra page with an illustration of your own or from the internet, it's up to you how you present this). You can finish this tomorrow if needed.
