Now class, for our book assignment, we will each read a biography of a famous person.  You will each write a 5 page paper about your person.  And then we will have a biography tea.  All the students will have the chance to dress up as their character and  we' ll have a party.  Doesn't that sound like fun.  So, we will now draw names out of a hat.  Helen Keller, good.  Queen Elizabeth, excellent.  Gandhi, no he didin't just wear a diaper.  And let's see who Reilly gets.  Fabulous, Teddy Roosevelt.  I'm sure you'll learn a great deal from President Roosevelt.
