Milwaukee Heroism Curriculum
Author Bob Kann created the Milwaukee Heroism Project curriculum for Milwaukee Public Schools. It was inspired by Lizzie Kander's heroic lifelong commitment to service.
The Milwaukee Heroism Project
(Appropriate for 4th grade and above)
How do we help students to understand that they are capable of changing the world? How do we nurture in them self-esteem, confidence, pride, and a sense of responsibility for the well-being of their community and places beyond? One way to achieve this is to help them find "the hero" within themselves. That is, to have them experience something in which they act heroically and thereby recognize their abilities to make the world a better place to live.
Arts @ Large has partnered with Dr. Robert Kann and the Jewish Museum Milwaukee to create the Milwaukee Heroism Project, based on Dr. Kann's new book published by the Wisconsin State Historical Society, "A Recipe for Success: Lizzie Kander and Her Cookbook."
