Do Heroes Have to Wear a Cape?

Young writers choose a person from American history, their community, or their family to use as the subject of a persuasive essay. The process begins with a discussion of the characteristics of a hero, the completion of a prewriting web, and a review of the Six Traits of Writing format. Pupils then draft, revise and polish their essays before submitting them to a writing contest.
