MY HERO

Students and adults from around the world have helped build this extensive database of hero stories, art work, and short films. Teacher resources include the ability to create a web page of student stories or stories around themes such as black history and women.

Add your vision by sharing your words, images, and short films celebrating heroes from around the world. Browse the library, gallery, news wire, and forum and then sign the guest book. Checkout the Teacher's Room for lesson plans and curriculum supplements such as the My Hero Living Museum. (Keywords: biography, heroes, peacemakers)

"As a fourth grade teacher, I have used the My eCoach program to enhance learning for all of my students. I have had the opportunity to connect technology to the curriculum, which has greatly improved my teaching practice. My eCoach has gotten my students excited about learning and therefore, improved student achievement, strengthening their research, comprehension, and writing skills."
