Links to Biographies of Scientists

      This page provides links to various web sites that offer biographical information about real scientists.   You might decide, for example, to use one or more of these resources to prepare authentic accounts for your students of what scientists actually do.   Such an activity might be appropriate following the "Draw a Scientist" task for confronting some of the common misconceptions or stereotypes about scientists held by students and as a way of expanding (both your own and) your students' understanding of who can be a scientist and what real scientists do.

      Please let me know if you come across additional resources that should be added to this list.
