The MY HERO Project has been used in classrooms around the world since 1995. Here are some timeless examples:


This unit, written by teacher Billie-Jo Grant, is an All School project, and though it's intended for elementary students, many parts are applicable to middle and high school students as well.

"As they identified and researched heroes from the nation and world at large, as well as local and regional heroes, students learned to recognize and appreciate “unsung” heroism in themselves, at home, at school, and in their community. The unit is centered on cross-age groupings, and includes online and real time research, as well as various presentations, including those of outside visitors."
