Welcome to the Biography Project Page

The Internet can provide students with biographical information which can then be used to produce written and oral reports in which students develop academic research skills. This biography project can be adapted to various levels of ESL content-based instruction.

1. Select a theme and appropriate subjects for student summary biographies.

2. Organize students in small groups.

2. Provide students with level-appropriate resources for research. (See links below.)
