My Hero Learning Circle - Middle School - May 2010

Children around the world tell us about their heroes.

My Hero Learning Circles is an online global exchange that has My Hero partnered with Teachers and students from around the world learn about each others cultures, communities, countries and of course, their heroes. The world is brought into each of their classrooms and their classrooms into the world. This Middle School circle is the largest and most diverse to date, with classes participating from USA, Russia, Canada, Ukraine, Spain, Indonesia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. The My Hero Project thanks you for all your hard work and for your amazing results, that everyone can see on this page. I encourage everyone who sees this to take some time and click through ALL of the classes in this new archive of heroism as seen through the eyes of our children. Have a great summer. - Wendy
