Students are often asked to write about an inspiring person from a particular profession, gender, or ethnic group. And too often most of the class wants to write about the same person. As one school librarian said at the beginning of Black History Month, she is "a little weary of Jackie and Rosa who are of course important but sometimes you need to stretch a bit to someone unfamiliar." How can students stretch a bit? With Dulcinea Media's newest product, SweetSearch Biographies (http://www.sweetsearch.com/biographies) It offers profiles and outstanding search results for thousands of people from many walks of life, professions and countries, spanning many centuries. The nifty category filters enable students to easily sort profiles by gender, profession, and nationality/race. Looking for African American female authors? Choose those three filters and the screen displays only profiles that fit all three. SweetSearch Biographies is a great tool for students who want to discover lesser-known inspiring people, and for teachers who are tired of getting dozens of the same biographies from students year after year.
