Project: Who's Who - Who is This Person

This project is part of a larger group of projects based around a single theme about well-known people. Prior to beginning any of the projects, students need to generate a list of well-known people from a specific profession. Read the "Who's Who Project Guid" for information.

In this project, students research and then write a brief biography about one of the well-known people using MLA guidelines. The document will also include a table. (Note: To simplify this project, students are not required to follow MLA guidelines for the table.)
