(TP8) We Can Be Heroes: The Symbolism of Superheroes in Your Curriculum

Room 303 - Education

Friday June 30, 2017 - 1:30 pm to 2:20 pm

Kids love superheroes. As teachers, we can use this to our advantage. The symbolism in superhero design and history are a kind of literacy that kids understand, even they don't realize it until it's pointed out to them. We'll explore the symbolism of existing heroes, discover how to connect those characters to our curriculum, and help students design their own heroes that represent your core content.
