Set-Up: Throughout the year, we’ll be looking at every story in terms of the “hero”. For some, this simply means the “protagonist” — or central/main character of the story — but over time we will begin to understand that the “hero” is a very complicated, multi-tiered concept.
- Identify — in your opinion — the best example of a “hero” in any movie or TV show you’ve ever seen. Explain why you believe this person/being is the ‘best’ example.
- Identify — in your opinion — the best example of a “hero” in any book or story you’ve ever read. Explain why you believe this character is the ‘best’ example.
- Identify — in your opinion — the best real life human being that has acted in a “heroic” manner during your lifetime. The person can be someone you know or someone you’ve heard about on the news, etc.
Length: Min of 2 sentences for each of the 3 characters/people.
