At least once during the school year you will get an assignment that requires you to choose an important person in history to write about. Whether it’s a book report or a presentation, it is a good idea to have some sites bookmarked to help you make your decision about a subject and in your research.
Keep in mind that the person you choose does not have to be someone you learned about in your history book; he or she could be a person you have something in common with, such as a famous Olympic athlete or a favorite author. Here are some sites we recommend:
Academy of Achievement
Encyclopedia of World Biography
Library of Congress
Ask Amy a Question
