Web Site of the Week: 100 Leaders
100 leaders chronicles the life and work of 100 men and women who guided the course of history, in one way or another, in countries and cultures around the world. Interestingly, the site does not concentrate its attention only on “great” leaders, but instead examines the example of “significant” leaders, putting a critical eye to both the accomplishments and catastrophes that leaders have wrought over the years. Readers may scout the site by Type (Artistic, Economic, Intellectual, Military, Political, Religious, Scientific, and Social), by Sphere of Influence (Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, Europe, Middle East, and North America), and Time Period. Examples of featured leaders include Desmond Tutu, Sitting Bull, Augustine of Hippo, Elizabeth I, and many others. Educators, especially, will appreciate the Classroom Resources, which include a short video, as well as Lessons, Printable Posters, and other inspirational tools. [CNH]
