Hi, guys!! Welcome to a new semester of blogging.
So far, in Persepolis this marking period, we've seen Marji battle her preconceived notions of the makings of a hero, with respect to both her family and her friends' families. Therefore, I want you to examine your own preconceptions about heroism, and how they've changed as you've grown older. When you were little, who were your childhood heroes? Who are your heroes today? Why? How have your ideas about heroism changed over the years?
Your comments on this blog post will count as a homework assignment for the first marking period of the spring semester.
