Research project

One teacher here had her kids do a research project where they had to find information about 5 playwrights and give a short description of their lives and works. One student immediately asked, "So where do we go for that, playwrights.com?" The results have been very spotty... some students have done plays, not playwrights, while many others have done authors; Dickens has come up a lot. One student even included composers Ralph Vaughn Williams and Benjamin Britten. I'm glad I don't teach English...
