A Bio-poem is a form of poetry using a prescribed or structured format. Although it follows a “formula”, this form still allows for creativity on the part of the writer.

On each line of your poem provide only the information requested for that line.  For lines 4 through 9, you should begin the line with the underlined words given; you supply the information in the parentheses. You may complete the line with single words or with phrases.  Your object is to show the depth of your understanding about the character.


Line 1 --  First Name

Line 2 --  Title given to the character

Line 2 -- Four words which describe the character
