A part of the search for Everyday Heroes today we turn to CNN and their November campaign to acknowledge modern heroes.
CNN's global initiative "CNN Heroes" is showcasing examples of ordinary people who have accomplished extraordinary deeds.
A great teacher resource for teaching about everyday heroes is the CNN Teacher/Student Hero resource link designed to discuss everyday heroes with students.
"CNN Heroes" spotlights and celebrates the very best of humankind. Students will discover the many ways that one person can contribute to society and will come to appreciate their own potential to make a difference in the world.
