For September 1, 2007: The MY HERO project and Web site
—a not for profit educational Web project that celebrates the best of humanity—encourages families, schools, and organizations to publicly honor heroes that have made a difference through words, images, and short films.
On the teacher page there are lessons, resources, and a calendar with hero stories for each day. The eCreate tool allows teachers to create an index of student stories so students can view each other's work and share stories with their parents. Students are provided a step-by-step tutorial for creating a MY HERO Web page. This site offers a wealth of material for learning, thinking, and writing about heroes.
