Who do your children look up to?


Who are their heroes?


Do they know the difference between heroes and idols?

These are the types of questions that the PACE curriculum addresses in our brand-new resource: Read a Hero, Be a Hero (RAHBAH)!


Released in June 2020, RAHBAH is a stand-alone workbook that furthers the core virtue study of the PACE curriculum in a whole new context. Featuring original biographies of famous as well as little-known heroes from around the world, RAHBAH encourages students to reflect on true heroism as it it relates to virtue and their own lives.

The easy-to-follow format includes 50 concise biographies, each accompanied by hero-specific questions, as well as discussion topics that invite personal reflection and application.

The workbook can be used by multiple students concurrently, and while it is geared primarily towards grades 7-8, RAHBAH includes recommended books for younger children so that they can still benefit from the hero discussions.


The ten chapters, corresponding to the ten PACE virtues, can be seamlessly incorporated into any academic curriculum, although the flexible nature of the resource more than allows for use on an informal basis, such as during downtime in a school day.


RAHBAH also includes an Answer Key at the back of the book for stress-free instruction!
