This paper features a number of ways in which teachers can adapt their traditional curriculum to meet the personal interests of their students. It goes beyond the basic idea of differention and uses student's lives as a basis for instruction. By studying the lives of authors, and the connections there are between authors lives and their writing, teachers can show how life inspires great books and ideas. The paper also makes suggestions as to how teachers can encourage students to look at their own lives and draw inspiration and creativity from their experiences.
