everyday heroes

Because it's 9/11, schools across the country are observing Hero Day. I wanted to do something a little non-traditional to get my students thinking about heroes, so I issued a challenge: do a good deed. Pay it forward. I challenged them to think of something they could do to be everyday heroes, because at this age it's tough to perform a grand gesture. The challenge is to take a photo or video of themselves in the act. I want to create a montage of good deeds and send it to the local paper. Because a lot of people have negative connotations of teens and my experience of teens is positive. My students are fun, inspiring, and every day is enjoyable.

We're going to be everyday heroes.
