Britannica Beginner Bios Series


These biographies chronicle successful and inspiring individuals from a wide variety of fields, introducing their life stories to readers who are most likely only somewhat familiar with their names, accomplishments, and professions. By learning about these individuals, readers will see the human face behind some of the greatest scientific achievements, works of art and music, and political events in history. They will recognize, too, that greatness can manifest itself in many different ways. A timeline of each subject’s life is included, and interesting facts and vocabulary words are highlighted in each chapter. • Significance of each person’s life is highlighted through his or her contributions to science, history, and art. • Boxed insets pose relevant questions to readers, promoting critical thinking. • Students can use domain-specific vocabulary they’ve learned from the book to effectively explain the text.
