Who’s YOUR Hero?

Eng 101 Hero Group Presentation

Modern heroes
Modern Heroes

As children we all had our favorite superheroes. We loved them, worshipped them, pretended to be them, dressed like them and even talked like them. Now that we’re adults, we are all too well aware that heroes are in high demand but can rarely be found. The overwhelming ugliness found everywhere in the world today has desensitized us to the point where hardly anything seems shocking or repulsive anymore. Luckily, we don’t need superpowers or a cape to make a difference in the world. To accomplish heroic acts, all we need is a willing mind and a willing heart. Many of the courageous, self-sacrificing people that we will learn about today are considered modern heroes. They have all proven that an ordinary person can achieve extraordinary feats and make a difference in the lives of others.

Bibliography & Annotations

Noodle Tools: The Electronic Annotated Bibliography

What is an “annotated bibliography”?

Whenever you do research, you must give credit to the sources where you found your information. Using good sources shows that your presentation is well researched and credible.

A bibliography lists the citation information for each source (Where is the source published? How can I, as the reader, locate your source?).

How to annotate

Each Source must be ANNOTATED:

1st Paragraph: Summarize the facts that each source contains. Only focus on the important facts that prove your person is a hero.

2nd Paragraph: Explain how you will use these facts in your speech to prove your thesis. (Remember: thesis = why your person is a hero). So you might say, “Because my hero donated 1 million dollars to charity, she is generous. This proves she is a hero because…”
