Hi-Lo Biographies

These easy-to-read biographies—written at a Grade 2 level—portray the lives of famous Canadian, American, and international figures. The well-organized chapters, glossaries, and discussion questions can be used to promote pre-, during, and post-reading strategies. The photographs, maps, and illustrations reflect the text, making the words easier to decode. Each biography contains 48 pages—long enough to narrate fully each person’s story—but short enough for beginner readers. Download free workbook activities for each biography.
