File 6: My Hero


In the My Hero task students select a person they look up to and present in front of the class.

As we were growing up, we surely looked to our parents as a strong role model to follow, always trying to imitate them in one way or another. Then, we grow older and our social circles expand so we start looking outward to other influences such as friends, teachers, even some acquaintances who leave a strong presence. Also, we look to musicians, actors and authors for inspiration and guidance.

If you stop to take notice on your beliefs and principles, you realize it is very difficult to separate what has been influenced by others and what has been a result of your own individual maturity as a person. This means that every time you defend your beliefs, you also honor those people in your life who have influenced you.

With this task we will honor only one of those person's who have left a positive mark on each and every one of us.



1. TASK DESCRIPTION
  • Talk about how people one has known while growing up have made a positive impact in one's life through a visual presentation as well as share experiences with others.
2. WHAT I NEED

  4. Take note of how you first met or came in contact with your influential person
  5. Take note, as best as you can, of the things in your life that have a direct link to the influence of your hero
  6. Using all the information you have gathered, prepare a presentation with text and visual
    • as noted above, your presentation can be digital or practical.
5. HOW WILL I KNOW I HAVE FINISHED?
