To start with you will need to decide how you want to design and organise your information. Which will you choose?

  • A booklet with pages for each person
  • A power point
  • Microsoft word
  • Pic collage
  • Poster with text boxes
  • Written format

Once you have an idea of how you want to present your information, you may continue.

  • What was job did she do?
  • What was special about Katherine?
  • What did she have to overcome?
  • What changes did she make?
