“Heroes Among Us” explores the concept that heroes are raised, rather than born. Through a series of projects, it supports teachers in laying the foundation of ‘heroic habits’.
In this integrated project pack, we explore the question, “How do you develop the skills to become a hero?” through four key ideas:
- A heroic habit is standing up for the rights of others.
- A heroic habit is taking action to support others, even if you are afraid.
- A heroic habit is understanding that our actions now can make a difference in the future.
- We can see people demonstrating advocacy, allyship, and vision everyday in our community.
Each key idea includes a learning segment where students build knowledge and deepen their understanding of a topic area.
A second segment features artworks that support learning and deepen students’ understanding of the diverse ways the idea can be approached.
And finally, each key idea also includes an art project that connects everything together and encourages students to do so in a way that is personally and culturally relevant to them.
