What Makes a Hero?
EXPLORE & REFLECT
CHECKPOINT: OUR STORIES
After watching the TED-Ed video and exploring the diagram, start two lists:
1) List the heroes you recall from movies, books, or television.
2) List heroic feats from your own life. How many heroes' journeys have you initiated for yourself?
a) What fears have
you overcome? Recall
the steps you took that led you to the other side of that fear.
b) When did you undertake a difficult task you didn't think you could do? What phases did you go through before you finished the task?
c) What lessons did you learn along the way that changed your opinion of yourself? How did the journey change you?
REMEMBER: it is a process of starting an adventure, facing challenges, and overcoming them to become a better person—AND, hopefully improving the greater good of everyone along the way too.
