ABSTRACT
The author recounts her experiences in teaching her students about scientists. Through the circle map activity she initially administered, she realized that her students think scientists as unusual people. To change their perception toward scientists and to show them that all kinds of people participate in the scientific enterprise, she decided to resort to biographies of scientists. She first discussed the use of biographies, and later she asked them to dig into some biographies themselves.
