In class we have been learning how to write a biography, below is a copy of the Biography Worksheet which was handed in class, you can use this sheet to make a rough draft on how you want your biography to be written up. The Guy Sebastian biography is an example of what I am expecting students to write, nothing too complex and nothing too simple.
