Let’s face it: economia to those great heroes of the past are nothing new, and some might believe that there are too many out there in the first place. The Academy of Achievement website disproves this idea with its well-thought out tributes to those truly unique individuals who have made substantive contributions in the arts, the sciences, and a number of other areas of human endeavor. As its site notes, it is a “museum of living history”, and a cursory glance over those they have honored would seem to bear witness to this statement. First-time visitors will definitely want to take a look at the “Achiever Gallery”, where they can view profiles and biographies of such personages as Jonas Salk, Rosa Parks, and Willie Mays. The real icing on the cake here is the interview section for each profiled member, as it truly allows for a number of interesting and evocative insights into their motivations and life trajectories. The site is rounded out with a “For Teachers” section, which offers a number of pedagogical tools specifically aimed towards those in the teaching profession.
