Teaching through biographies
“Who can dispute the value of a good story? Though students may initially view them as dull, biographies are the stuff that great classroom activities are made of—history, honesty, and heroism.” – Education World

The Information and Learning Center also subscribes to six databases (listed below) that offer rich, biographical content and can be accessed from the ACHS and Lakes ILC home pages. For three of the databases, we have research LibGuides created. These LibGuides offer videos, search tips, and remote access instructions that you can share with your students. Kellie and I are hard at work to finish creating LibGuides for all of our database offerings.
