What is a Hero?
In the beginning of the book, The Dragonling, Darek wants to be a
hero like his brother, Clep, but by the end of the story Darek has
changed his definition of a hero. What is your definition of a hero?
Discuss your ideas about heroes with your classmates, then draw a
picture of someone you think of as a hero below. Write his or her
name under the picture, then write a paragraph telling why you chose
