Heroes. ArtsEdge Curricula, Lessons and Activities.
This lesson uses an interdisciplinary approach to looking at the concept of "heroes." In a world with few heroes, students will recognize the positive character traits of heroes through the use of music, art, creative writing, and literature. The lesson offers an overview; suggests length and grade level; gives subjects and subtopics; cites dimensions of learning and intelligences being addressed; notes equipment and materials needed; lists teacher resources; and addresses National Standards for Arts Education and other standards. It also presents instructional objectives and strategies; provides a detailed, step-by-step instructional plan; and suggests assessment and extension activities. Attached are quotes from writers about heroes and a question to answer about heroes. (NKA)
