We asked an English Social Studies class at Skien Upper Secondary School the following question:

Who are the most memorable and influential persons in the last two hundred years? Choose a person that has played a role in the English-speaking world or globally, and who has accomplished something you admire. Give reasons for your choice and show how you, as a young person, would approach the task of finding out more about his/her life.

Below you will find links to teaching resources based on the lives of some of the people the students found memorable and interesting.
