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)

"I love to use My eCoach because it allows me to produce a very professional lesson plan. I share my work with other teachers at conferences and in my district. I work hard to develop strong lesson plans tied to Michigan content standards and it is important to me that my finished work looks good and reflects the amount of time and energy I have invested it. My eCoach tools are easy to use and I am proud of the results they produce.

In addition, My eCoach makes it easy to encourage other teachers trying to create lesson plans tied to their content standards. I am able to give them feedback through each step of the process. Even though they may be creating their first lesson plan, they are delighted with the resulting product. It empowers them to try other technology tools that are new to them.

I have used My eCoach for the past ten years. I have created lesson plans for a state level organization, as well as for the State Department of Education. In all that time, I have never seen another tool that can compare to the tools on My eCoach. In ease of use and in the product it produces, My eCoach provides the best tools available."
