A hero is a person of great courage or ability who is
admired for his or her bravery and good qualities. Many
stories involve heroes as main or supporting characters.
• Share what you have read about heroes in
other stories.
• Share examples of heroes you have read
about. Discuss how you could tell that the
people you were reading about were heroes.
• Can you identify the qualities that these
heroes have in common?
Reinforce Theme Vocabulary

Let’s create a story map about a
hero who encounters an obstacle.
•We’ll complete the story map
together by brainstorming the
elements of our story.
•Use the theme vocabulary words
in the map and explain why you
included each word.
•How are the vocabulary words
relevent to the story’s plot?
Example
Determine Important Information
• Remember-It’s a good strategy to figure out
what the most important ideas are in your
reading. These are the ideas the author wants
you to know.
Let’s look at pp. 264-65
and create a T-Chart.
Important
Not Important
The author compares
Lincoln’s height to his
important place in
history. I know that
being tall does not
necessarily make a
person heroic. Even so, I
can find the things
Lincoln did that make
him well remembered.
When he was a leader,
enslaved people were
freed. I know this is
important information
because what Lincoln
did changed people’s
lives.
