Biography Writing Workshop for 4th graders

The structure of the workshop included the basic writing process, parts of a story, fiction versus non-fiction, directions on conducting an interview, sample questions to ask and guidance on developing their own stories. The best part was  that the kids learned something new from people who are important in their daily lives.
