The Awakening Syllabus Ms. Gomes Vieira Biography Due Feburary 26 A biography is simply the story of a life. Biographies can be just a few sentences long, or they can fill an entire book—or two. We are writing a very short biography to tell the basic facts of your person’s life and importance . Biographies analyze and interpret the events in a person's life. Our biography is looking specifically at how this person or group became revolutionary. We are trying to find connections, explain the meaning of their work, and make arguments about the significance of the person's accomplishments or life activities. In 2-3 Paragraphs explain the following about your person: In Paragraph 1: Who: tell me who they are, where they lived and other basic biographical information. What were they fighting for/against. i.e. civil rights, Vietnam war. What are the adjectives you would most use to describe the person? What examples from their life illustrate those qualities? What events shaped or changed this person's life? Did he or she overcome obstacles? Take risks? Get lucky? In Paragraph 2: What did they do? Poetry, music, essays, speeches, etc. When did they do this? Were they before their time, during a prominent era or at the tail end of a movement? What kind of effect did he or she have on the world? other people? In Paragraph 3: Why this person? What makes this person special or interesting? Why are they or what they tried to accomplish so important or interesting that they deserve a paper written about them? Would the world be better or worse if this person hadn't lived? How and why? Remember: Do not use I, you or any first person in these paragraphs. Use your graded proposal to complete this assignment. If you did not do the proposal, then you must find all this information. Remember to cite any and all information that you get from another source.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
