Select a biography to read on which to base your Final Project. Think about leaders, artists, composers, researchers, professors, otherwise influential people, etc. The person you choose should be someone who has had impact (positive or negative) on others and/or society.
As you are deciding whose biography you would like to read, keep in mind the more contemporary the person, the less you will find written about them.
For example you will find many more biographies written about Theodore Roosevelt than you would about Kim Kardashian.
