I teach a class where the students don’t receive a grade… It is for students who don’t take Spanish, French or German and have extra English/Swedish instead.

The Amazing Race: English Edition – The Canswedian English Teacher

At times I am left banging my head against the wall – or grumbling a few choice words – because the class lacks the structure and drive I so crave in my regular English classes. My co-teacher and I work fantastic together, and have tried to do what we can with them. However, I am constantly asking myself – how am I supposed to encourage the students and make them realize that they should give a hooey about these oh-so-important-lessons?! This summer, I had a little thought bubble float up one day.

There are so many role models out there that students are not aware of. The next step in this heroes unit is talking about present day heroes.

The Heroes Unit: Subunit 1 – Qualities of a Hero and the Heroic Journey – The Canswedian English Teacher

You can go through it in about 2 -3 months. Do me a favour. Ask your students who their heroes are. How many of them can answer that? I was quite shocked when not very many students could identify a hero in their life or even someone to look up to. And that’s how I begin this unit. I push the little muffins by questioning the hell out of them -what’s the difference between an idol and a hero? “Well – an idol is someone you think is really cool.” Yes, but so is a hero. “An idol is someone famous.” But now you are generalizing – what about Malala? “An idol is like a role model, and a hero is like somebody who has helped you in your life.” But couldn’t a hero help you indirectly? Keep questioning them – make them think. There are many other questions you can go through to make them think. Harry potter 20th anniversary party pack.
