Be sure to ask students to identify the profession that these people are involved in.

After the brainstorming session is complete, have students carefully choose a person they are interested in learning more about. Students will then create posters that communicate the following information
Students are encouraged to use a variety of research materials to complete this project. The Internet, library, magazines, newspapers and books are a good start. Students should be encouraged to try to contact those role models still living to gain more information if possible.
