Module 3 Assignment: What is an Every-Day Hero?
This writing activity is designed to have you consider the people whose lives are
covered in each of the Module 3 Materials (found in the Class Library).
PART A
Carefully listening to the Module 3 Materials prior to starting this writing activity is
necessary.
1. Of the four materials (of Module #3), which resonates with you the most?
This is not a “I liked it the most” type of question. Rather, think of this question in
terms of the story, the theme of Cultural Icons, and how it is that you connect with
this material. 50 word minimum
2. According to Keller’s definition, “Cultural icons represent heroes…”.
Provide a discussion for how Alfred Haws embodies this idea of a Cultural Icon
representing a hero. Be specific with your examples from the material. 100 word
minimum
3. Part of the definition for Cultural Icon states, “… Groups frequently use symbols to
represent themselves, their identity, or their concerns.”
Referencing the Omar Apollo story, discuss how the above way of thinking about
Cultural Icons is very much a responsibility. Be specific with your examples from the
material. 100 word minimum
PART B
This writing activity is designed to have you consider the people whose lives are
covered in each of the materials.
These are short essays that will require you to think deeply about what was covered in
each material, but also to make connections between each.
Massive amounts of description is not required and will count against your grade. Be
specific and precise with your examples/references.
Carefully listening to the materials prior to starting this writing activity is necessary.
1. Consider Nagi Daifallah as well as the women behind the Montgomery Bus Boycott
through the lens of Keller’s definition, “Icons can represent a group or a cause.”
Provide a discussion for how Nagi Daifallah and the women of the Montgomery Bus
Boycott can (and should) be considered as Cultural Icons because of their being part
of a cause. Be specific with your examples from the material. Reference the two
corresponding materials. 200 word minimum.
2. The many people whose stories are shared in this module’s materials are extremely
different from one another. Argue how their many differences is what makes it
possible for them to be all the same, i.e., Cultural Icons.
