This module is designed for 3rd through 5th graders to explore their names, identity, immigration and cultural lore to find heroic moments in their family history. Using Icelandic immigration, both historical and current, as a model to explore: the meaning and uses of names, the difficulties of language, belonging and identity, and historical storytelling through "Egil's Saga", the student creates a personal definition of a hero. After learning basic interview techniques, the module includes interviewing a family member and identifying a heroic moment to portray through a student created comic. A gallery of comics is displayed for the community viewing including artists statements.
