Example Bio Statements

Once you have read Markel, Chapters 4 and 6, apply the information by analyzing some example biography statements.

  1. Read several of the biographies linked below. I gathered a range of biographies from different kinds of sites. Please be sure to read at least one formal company/academic bio and one informal bio.

    Formal bios

    Less formal bios

  2. Go to Discussions in Canvas and choose the "Analyzing Example Bio Statements" discussion. Discuss what you can tell about audience and purpose for the bio statements based on the information they include and the tone of the biographies. There are some questions there to help you get started.

  3. Once you have posted about your readings, read through what others had to say, and reply to two or more of the ideas or questions that your classmates have posted.
