Heroes act as authority figures protecting people’s natural rights, mentors that provide sound advice, advocates that defend against injustice, and caregivers that provide a safe environment to learn life’s lessons. Heroes think interdependently and are models of civic virtue. Historical or present day heroes truly inspire us to persist when dealing with obstacles, apply past knowledge to new situations, and motivate us to be unselfish in our words and deeds and work for the common good/welfare.
This is Part 2 of our unit’s (Origins of American Government) Culminating Project, “It’s Time for Enlightenment.” This is also an IN CLASS PROJECT.Students, THIS PROJECT IS BASED ON THE HERO YOU SELECTED IN YOUR FOLDABLE. Most of the research has already been completed. We will use the iPADS for additional research and use the CORKULOUS APP to create a virtual “corkboard” display. If you are absent, you will have to complete the questions/research at home and use the Corkulous App during class.
FIRST: Respond to the GUIDING QUESTIONS in complete sentences. Record the source for each question.
SECOND: Use the CORKULOUS APP to complete the checklist.
LASTLY: Seek feedback from a peer. Peers, Refer to the Rubric Checklist and provide 1 example of what the person did well (“warm feedback”) and at least 1 way they can improve (“cool feedback”).
