    Heroes under the microscope Heroes under the microscope Presentation Transcript

    • Heroes under the microscope
    • Today we are going to:
      Consider the different qualities that a hero has.
      Examine why we seek to create and celebrate heroes.
    • Think
      Take a few minutes to think about the qualities that you believe a hero has (e.g. bravery) and write them down.
      Then write a list of people you think could be described as heroes (e.g. soldiers).
    • Pair & share
      Now compare your lists with a partner and discuss the similarities and differences between them.
      As you go along, edit your lists according to the outcomes of your discussion.
    • How can you best organise your list?
    • Heroic qualities
    • Why are these traits (qualities) considered to be ‘heroic’?
    • Heroic people?
    • How else could your list of heroic people have been organised and what would that have revealed?
    • What, then, determines whether we consider an individual, or a group of people, to be heroes or not?
    • IS the word ‘hero’ overused?
    • Does a person’s choice of heroes tells us something about them?
    • What do my heroes tell you about my values and beliefs?
    • Your Heroes
      • Whoare your heroes?
      • Whatare their heroic qualities?
      • Why are they your heroes?
      • What does this say about you?
