Dr. Denenberg joined with a business partner to create a unique collection of Real American Heroes Trading Cards. The cards provide an introduction to the extraordinary accomplishments of some of the heroes presented in 50 American Heroes Every Kid Should Meet.
Character Education Tools
Dr. Denenberg has combined the stories of each hero with a virtue word. The actions of the heroes in the face of adversity and challenge exemplify a character trait which kids can learn and emulate. Each card also includes a "Call To Action," motivating kids to bring the virtues into their own lives.
Leaders of character education have expressed excitement for the Real American Heroes cards for use in classrooms and groups. The cards reinforce core values while they also serve as rewards and reminders. They can easily be integrated into a variety of lessons. In each, they offer a real world example of great works and represent the potential that each child has.
The Heroes Club
The Heroes Club is a partner website co-founded by Dr. Denenberg. It offers additional information about 25 of the heroes in the 50 American Heroes book.
The Real American Heroes Trading Cards are available for purchase on-line at http://www.TheHeroesClub.org where students can learn more about the individual heroes and teachers can find classroom resources and ideas.
