You will be creating a Facebook profile (not a real one) of a world leader in the post-World War II era. The following list includes leaders that can be researched: Harry Truman, Joseph Stalin, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Nikita Khruschev, Leonid Brezhnev, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Mikhail Gorbachev, Ronald Reagan, Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela, Pope John Paul II, Margaret Thatcher, Mao Zedong, Indira Gandhi, Fidel Castro, Lech Walesa, Yitzak Rabin, Gamal Abdel Nasser, Edward Teller, Martin Luther King Jr., Deng Xiaoping, Mother Theresa, Yuri Gagarin, Neil Armstrong, Suharto, Benazir Bhutto, Boris Yeltzin, Kim Il-sung, Tenzin Gyatso, Golda Meir. You are invited to suggest other possible options for research, but you will need any such suggestions approved by myself first. You may not research the same leader as another student in the class.
Once you have picked a personality to research you will need to get to work quickly and start building a Facebook profile of the individual you have chosen. You will need to analyze the aspects of the person you have chosen carefully and focus on those parts that have had or continue to have an impact on the course of history.
