How do you get students to enjoy writing and presenting? Make it a competition! In this activity students write an essay explaining how their American or international hero demonstrates courage, honor, ability to lead, morality and patriotism (CHAMP for short). They then present their hero in a single-elimination tournament until only one champion remains.
