Biographies: Short, Short Stories Based on “Messages of People’s Lives” = Everything to Know [Now] About Teaching & Learning with Biographical Material, pages 1– 11 (Covers, Illustrated Tables of Contents, Prefaces, Intros

11 Pages    

Who It’s For: Educators Embarking on “Biographical Journeys” with Stimuli That Apply to Research, (Choice of) Subject Matter, Pedagogic Principles, Adaptation, & More                                        

Why You Need It: Once you’ve decided that biographical data is a dynamic source of motivating subject matter (for language-skills instruction), you can get ideas on how to handle it from resources like the classic 44-half-page F-07.10 Biographies: Short, Short Stories Based on the “Messages” of People’s Lives.  

Here’s another version of substantially the same material to download.  Extracted from the beginning of the full-sized 152-page Biographies: Short, Short Stories Based on “Messages of People’s Lives” = Everything to Know [Now] About Teaching & Learning with Biographical Material, after its covers its first three pages display an extensive, partially illustrated Table of Contents (illustrative of the kinds of personas who can or even should be covered).  Then comes explanation of what to do and why to do it.

What You’ll / They’ll Do:  

[1] From the front and inside covers and boxed-in Tables of Contents, get input about what a full and comprehensive “course of study” about famous people could entail.  Notice that the “Subjects of Biographical Articles 61-80” at the top of page 5 are not  quite complete.  That’s because the subject matter is so expansive, so fluid or ever-changing, and so important that it really has no end.   

[2] Only the first four boxes of the beginning of the Table of Contents on page 3 tell what’s in this F-07.11a excerpt.  There’s an Intro to the subject matter on page 6.   Page 7 reviews (previous) “Sources of Biographical Material,” many more of which  continually appear.  In “Adapting Biographical Reading Material” on pages 8-9 are  get tips on “Conveying the Main Idea,” “Organizing Important Supporting Info,” & “Other Kinds of Alterations.”  Then come thoughts on the “Subjects of Biographical Language & Content Learning.”    

 Finally, there are remarks about what follows in the full 152-page product, Biographies: Short, Short Stories . . . Everything to Know [Now]Excerpts appear in the Parts & Pieces that follow: F-07.11b, F-07.11c, F-07.11d, F-07.11e.
