Setting a purpose before reading helps readers focus their attention.

What qualities does a hero have.

You may have other purposes for reading. Ask yourself:

Heroes

today? Maybe you’re interested to learn how athletes have made a difference.

Slide22

Let’s Read Together

Turn to pp. 262 and 263.

As I begin reading Chapter 1, I notice that the author gives several examples of heroes from the past. These heroes seem like everyday people to me. I also see a photograph of an athlete and a picture of some

exporers

. Why did the author choose to write about them? What makes them heroes? What do they have in common?

The passage moves from talking about courage to giving information about Abraham Lincoln. Why do you think the author does that?

What words would you use to describe Abraham Lincoln?

The author uses a map when she writes about Susie King Taylor. How does the map help you understand Taylor’s accomplishments?

Slide25

The author suggests Chief Joseph is a hero because he decided to Surrender. Why do you think the author considers this action heroic?

What does the map show about Chief Joseph’s tough journey?

Slide26

What do the photo and caption of Roberto Clemente on p. 270 tell you about the kind of person he was?
