Your history book is filled with interesting people you might like to learn more about. What time period are you supposed to focus on? Is the person supposed to be part of the political, scientific, artistic or military movement?
If you’re interested in architecture you might choose Frank Lloyd Wright. If you’re interested in flight you might select the Wright brothers or any of the NASA scientists and astronauts.
How about industrialists like Andrew Carnegie, Francis Cabot Lowell, Eli Whitney, Commodore Vanderbilt or Johann August Sutter?
If you’re interested in writers consider Robert Frost, Shel Silverstein, Emily Dickinson or Edgar Allen Poe. Famous scientists you might want to learn more about could include Alexander Graham Bell, George Eastman and Thomas Edison. Interesting artists are Ansel Adams and Norman Rockwell.
Do you like learning about explorers? If so you might consider Lewis and Clark.
Those are just a few ideas for you to consider. Ask your teacher about these suggestions.
Remember that the objective is for you to actually LEARN about someone who is interesting to you. Find out what made them successful and then see how you can adopt some of their qualities so that you will be successful too.
Do your best!
