Martin Luther, Joan of Arc, Rosa Parks or Amy Johnson? Someone from your family or the local firefighters? There are many heroes and heroines, but who do you admire the most? Learn and sing songs about the infamous villains, Bonnie and Clyde and Cruella de Vil. Write a riddle, a comic strip and change a traditional tale, develop dialogue and character and a biographical article. How does it feel to do good and bad things? Which feels best and why? Can you do a good deed that changes the world? Then let’s work together to write a really good rap to remember history’s greats. There are lots to include. Perform to an audience and teach them the words so that they can all rap along. Perhaps we can be heroes, just for one day?
