This is a biography project of Great Canadians. Students can choose one of the Canadians that were included in the handout, or they may choose their own. The outline of the assignment is provided, as well as an extensive (but incomplete) list of possible great Canadians and in what categories they fall in terms of their contributions to Canada.
The assignment is in three parts, with a written project, an oral presentation, and a visual display on bristol board. Rubrics for this assignment are NOT provided.
It is recommended that this project be a culminating activity, after students have learned what a biography is and how to write one.
