My hero – writing assignment

Who is your hero?

You are going to prepare a writing assignment – My hero. Before we start we will come up with a list of persons to write about. We will do this together in AnswerGarden.

How will this be done?

When you have chosen a person you should find out more about the person. You have to search on the Internet and find reliable sources. Remember to save the links so I can have a look at them and for you to be able to go back. You do this assignment on your own by using the template below.

My hero template

Make sure the following is included:

  • What was the problem for your hero?
  • Describe the person and who he/she was.
  • What did the person do?
  • When did this take place?
  • What consequences did this have?
  • Would you have done the same thing?

Use this handout about Source criticism:


When you have finished your writing show it to me and I will give you feedback on it. Perhaps you will have to include something or you have some mistakes to correct. When you have done the correction hand it in to me.


You will all present your work in groups so we get to know a bit more about some other heroes. How we will divide this we have to decide later on when we know who you chose to work with. We will also publish some of it online, so decide if you want to make a short movie or a text about your hero.
