Fake biographies

Writing activity ( described by Oksana Heshko ) Chernivtsi Lyceym # 2

I believe though that it can be useful practice to have your students write at least a few sentences in almost every lesson. As long as this written work is properly guided and truly short, and is not utterly mechanical.

Age 13 -11 Level Elementary-Intermediate Time 15-20 minutes Focus Writing biographies

Material A sheet of blank A4 paper for each student


Procedure

1 Sit the students in circles of six to eight each. Give each student a sheet of paper.

2 Ask everyone to write My name is ……. followed by their real name at

the top of the sheet. They then fold what they have written back behind the sheet twice, so that it can’t be seen.


  1. Collect in the sheets from Group A and swap them with those from Group B, and so on, so that everyone has someone else's paper. They must not look to see whose sheet they have got.

  2. Tell them: to write I was born in ... and add a place name

  • this answer and the ones to follow later can be as unusual as they like (and it is better if they are unusual!)

  • to fold the sheet back, when they have finished writing, and pass it left

5 Continue dictating what they should write, and leave them to fill in the details. (After each sentence, students fold the sheet back once and pass it left.) You could dictate some or all of the following:

a ^ My birthday is ...

they add the date

b I have... brothers and... sisters.

they add numbers, in words

c I live in ...

they add a place name

d I go to school and my favourite subject is...

they add a subject

e When I'm at home I like to ...

they add an activity

f I love music and my favourite group/singer is...

(they add a group/singer)

g ^ My favourite TV programme is...

they add a programme

h Last summer I went to... for my holidays

they add a place

i When I was there I met...

they add a person

j One other thing about me is that I...

open

  1. Collect in the sheets, open them up and hand them to the person whose name is at the top. They should read them, and enjoy them!

  2. They share them with their friends. There is usually much hilarity.

Follow on Students react to the false biographies by writing correcting sentences, e.g. / I wasn’t born in Africa. I was born in Italy. My favourite singer isn't Britney Spears. It's Madonna. Or they acknowledge statements that have coincidentally turned out to be true.
