Suggested Student Activities After Reading MY HERO Stories
After reading and listening to one of the stories, use a web organizer to write down facts about the hero you learning about or words that describe this hero. Then students use the graphic organizer to write a summary of the story read.
Students read two stories, and use a Venn Diagram to compare the heroes, looking for similarities and differences. Students write a two paragraph compare/contrast essay using the notes from the Venn Diagram.
Two students read the same story, then do a Think, Pair Share. Each student writes down why this person is a hero and what they learned about him or her. Then the two students share with each other what they wrote and decide together what they want to share with the class about this hero.
The main library of MY HERO stories is organized by categories. Here you will find curated stories submitted by people of all ages from around the world, as well as stories by professionals and staff members.
In addition, the stories library has curated Selected Stories in Multiple Languages and Stories Read Aloud, as well as helpful tutorials on creating and submitting your own hero story.
