- Introduction of author
- When and where author was born (and died, if he/she is not still living)
- Your author's inspiration or how he/she became a writer
- What he/she is known for
- At least 3 other interesting facts about your author (such as family information, awards, important events, etc.)
Not all of these are on your graphic organizer, so you should be taking your own notes as well on the back of your rubric. A copy of the author biography notes sheet and the rubric for your paragraph can be found below.
