Product Description
The “Qualities of a Hero” project focuses on recognizing important values in everyday life and individuals. It also allows students to creatively utilize technology to express their ideas. Students start the project with a whole class discussion on heroism, which can include video presentations (see the teacher resources). They work with a team to identify and classify different individuals who might be considered heroes. An additional organizer is included to extend this activity to identifying hero qualities with their group, or the organizer can be used later in the individual lesson. Finally, students research a hero of choice and create an online poster which also includes the qualities they identified incorporated into a Wordle word-web collage.

This lesson was created to use for Patriot Day 9/11 to showcase how a disaster can bring out the best in people who react as heroes, but is a great value lesson for anytime!

Files Included with this Lesson
• Teacher Notes and Resources (includes extension activities)
• Team Brainstorming Worksheet
• Team (or individual) Hero Qualities graphic organizer
• Research and Poster Project Expectations and Rubric

I've used this lesson with 7th and 8th graders and really enjoyed hearing some of the conclusions they drew about important life values. I hope your students enjoy it!
