For students: How to use USA Hero

The main intent of this web site is to help students do research for school essays.

You are presented a list of statements concerning the individual you are researching. Each of these statements can be made into a topic sentence and a paragraph written up about that topic. All you have to do is check out the reference links that are provided for you to do further research. If you cannot find data relating to what I have written on my pages, simply use your own information on what you found in doing your research. Do some looking around for details and, if necessary, use the additional sponsored links or the Google search engine.

It is important that you not plagiarize (copy sentences word-for-word from the web sites). As Webmaster, I give you permission to copy the sentences on USA Hero word-for-word if you wish but it is best to change the sentence around a bit if you can.

If you want to support or emphasize something, you can sometimes copy word-for-word from the web sites as long as you (a) put quotation marks around the sentence or sentences you are copying, (b) copy the statement exactly as it is on the web site, (c) put a small number at the end of what you have quoted, and (d) use that number at the end of your essay and state where the statement is taken from. (Please check with your teacher to see if he or she prefers you do it another way.)

A good essay WILL include several direct quotes taken from websites or books to support what you are writing about. There is nothing wrong in doing this and it helps to show your teacher that you have done your research!

TIP: Use a browser that supports multiple tabs so you can open the various reference sites in addition to USA Hero at the same time. I find that if you use a three-button mouse and click on any reference link with the middle button or scroll wheel, a new tab will open having that reference site. You can really work on an essay faster when you have several tabs open and can quickly move from one reference site tab to another.

TIP: Look for links or buttons that might show you more details on how to write an essay. I have spotted them on various pages so that you have to look for them.

Please report any incorrect information on USA Hero and let me know of any broken links. I would really appreciate hearing from you and encourage you to make a nomination for some other hero to be included on this web site.

To keep USA Hero as a free website, I have had to add more sponsored links recently to help offset my web site expenses. These sponsored links will bring in advertisements that are popup and virus free and often give you additional related information that you can use in your project. Be sure to read what the link is about first to see if it is related to your project.

I am starting to include related links which you might find useful on  Resource Web Sites. If you wish to have a link added here, please email the information.
