Military Times NOW hosts the HomeOfHeroes  Awards & Citations Database

 

Stories of American Heroes - Brought to you from the "Home of Heroes" - Pueblo, Colorado


Ideas:

 

We remember only a small part of what we hear, slightly more of those things we hear and see (visual aids).  There is a tremendous leap in the amount of retention we have of those things which we hear, see and PARTICIPATE in.  This page will provide you with class participation projects, and link you to resources to help you make them happen.

Create a display to your State's greatest Military heroes.  Click on the button above to visit our pages dedicated to recipients of the Medal of Honor.  Find the listing for your state and print each recipient's citation, photo and create a bulletin board display.  Perhaps even consider inviting a Medal of Honor recipient to visit your school for a patriotic assembly, or involve the students in sending "thank you" letters or birthday greetings to them.  We provide most of the information you need to get started, and are happy to answer e-mails with questions or requests for additional information.

Involve your students in learning something about their own family's service in uniform.  Most children are related to either a veteran or to someone currently serving in uniform.  Have the students learn something about these family members service, when, where, and what medals they earned.

When you click on the button above you can access our pages detailing every military medal authorized.  Children can download these, move them into a graphics or word processing program, and make a special page in honor of a family member who has served that includes copies of their authorized awards.

usa_map2.gif (18068 bytes)Learn about your home state, write reports, and then share the results of your study on the World Wide Web.  Currently we are building several hundred pages detailing the history, symbols, geography, government, and more for each of our 50 states.  TWENTY states already have school students working on them as part of an ongoing project/contest.  Click on the map at left to visit the main page of this site (still under construction).  If your class is interested in doing a page or more, we will be happy to work with you to put the pages in web format....and will even give your students credit for their hard work.   This is a great program not only for learning, but also for sharing.  It has the added bonus of giving your students the opportunity to see the results of their effort included as an important part of the Hall of Heroes web site.

Student initiated web content at the Hall of Heroes is NOT limited to the STATE pages only.   If your students are doing well-researched reports on other areas of American History that fit within our program, we welcome you to share them with others through out internet site.

presidents_bn.jpg (2439 bytes)Create a display to our US Presidents by printing the Presidential Biography pages found in our site.  You can click on the image at left to link to the main page that will give you access to our special pages on each of them.  You can event take an online tour of the Whitehouse or visit other goverment web sites.

bn_nav3_speaker.jpg (2669 bytes)Print, read, and study the Inaugural Addresses of our Presidents.   Many of these historic speeches contain some of the most commonly recognized phrases and quotes in American literature.  They provide a valuable educational tool as we prepare for a Presidential campaign and election next year, followed by the first Inauguraion of the new millenium.

More ideas will be coming as we build this series of pages.  Feel free to offer your own suggestions, or to share your experiences with ideas that have worked for you.
