Elements of a Biography

A biography is a non-fiction text about a significant person’s life. Below I have attached two biographies, one about Roald Dahl and the other about David Walliams. Choose one of the biographies and I would like you to see if you can find the following features:

Title

Subheadings

Facts

Past tense

Achievements

Hobbies

Dates

In your book, write the feature and then an example of what you have found in the text, for example,

 

Facts-David has an O.B.E. This is a special award given by the Queen.
