book quotes about OR by the character
links and resources: include urls to the individual’s website, YouTube videos, FB page, etc.
What should I include besides the basics about my character?
Put your research skills to use and find out if your character has a website, videos or other online resources. List these in the links and resources section for your character.
How will I find the answers to these questions about my character?
Research and reading. For most of these individuals the answers won’t be in one place. If there is a Wikipedia page you will have to look deep into the book and Google.
Why do some students have two characters?
Not all characters appear in every chapter so we have assigned some students two characters who aren’t featured frequently in the book.
