Blueprints for Biography: Differentiating the Curriculum for Talented Readers

Ann Robinson, Ph.D. University of Arkansas at Little Rock

A Blueprint for Biography is a guide for teachers and students engaged in the study of a specific biography. Blueprints include three types or clusters of questions that may be used for teacher-led discussion or provided as a reading guide to individual students. They also include extension activities focused on student writing, higher-order thinking, and primary source analysis. A series of Blueprints for Biography are being developed at the Jodie Mahony Center for Gifted Education at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, but educators can also create a Blueprint themselves for any biography they wish.
