Superheroes Unit of Work - Comics in the Classroom

(7)
With Ant Man, Venom , Aquaman, the animated Spiderman and Disney's Incredibles 2 all hitting cinema screens this year, comic book fever is gripping the world. Use mrwatt1's lesson pack to heat up your classroom. Although it might seem strange to ditch Dickens for Marvel or Shakespeare for DC, there's more to these popular publications than meets the eye. Comic books and superhero films explore the culture of our time, just as great novelists delved into the social issues of theirs. This is a unit based on comic books. Detailed resource containing a range of writing activities: short story, informative, biography and comic strip. Contains a huge number of resources and detailed lesson plans. I have included a selection of powerpoint lesson presentations - but I also use a lot of film clips to highlight points, especially explaining character motivation etc. These resources have been recommended by TES several times over the years! They were even used as the basis of a competition in Irish schools. https://www.tes.com/news/tes-archive/tes-publication/english-resource-week-zap-pow-comic-book-classes "The country that gave us Spider-Man, Batman and the Incredible Hulk is still obsessed with superheroes - particularly in the classroom. One of the nation's favourite resources is this series of PowerPoints and worksheets designed to help pupils understand the genre while developing their own storytelling skills. Pupils analyse film clips and comic books, develop character profiles by creating top trumps cards and design a map of a fantasy city for a superhero to live in. They then create their own superhero, write their biography and develop a short story on the theme "The day I discovered I had superpowers"." Victoria Grace Walden - TES article

Superhero Brain Breaks, Superhero Theme, Superhero Activity, Superheroes, Brain Breaks Use these Brain Breaks with your Superheroes between activities, as breaks in the middle of an activity, as motivators, for team-building activities and more. Each Brain Break is made up of two circles - the front has the title and the back has instructions on what to do. To assemble print out the A4 sheets, cut out the circles and then stick back to back with a lollipop stick sandwiched between the two circles. The front should show the title of the Brain Break and the back, the corresponding instructions. I’ve also included a PowerPoint file for you to edit and create your own. When the Brain Break Lollipops are made up, place in a container in your classroom so that they are handy when you need a Brain Break. Enjoy! MissPepperPot x

Role Models and Superheroes

Originally a ‘learn to learn/Citizenship’ lesson for a SEN low ability special needs class. Has been adapted slightly. It asks pupils to think about role models, characteristics, and what we should aspire to. I normally hand draw a ‘superhero’ body outline and ask pupils to use colours and design to reflect a villain side and a hero side - this way they have to consider colour connotations too!

Year 1 - Theme of Superheroes. Read the story Supertato. DT project - design and make a Supertato. We used the TASC wheel to structure the project. Letter from the Evil Pea - I left ‘bad messages’ from the Evil Pea around the school. Whoever read these messages turned bad. My TAs were mixing up all of the toys, and sitting on the tables. The children were in shock at first! Then, someone decided to make posters that had good messages on them to turn everyone back good. We focused on what ‘good’ and ‘bad’ meant.

This resource has been designed for 12 to 15 year olds to help with their **story-writing **and creativity skills, as well as teaching various features of language. Using the medium of comic books and superheroes, which seems to have a very broad appeal, I have tried to create a unit that starts with creating a character and can then lead into writing a story and/or letter. Pupils can also be encouraged to reflect on their experiences of comic books and films to identify techniques like onomatopoeia or alliteration in action. Differentiation is provided through the various worksheets that break down the different parts of creating a character and a story into bite-size chunks. These frames would not be required for more competent writers but they have helped those who struggle more. I have used this resource very successfully in a number of schools including Easterhouse, Glasgow, and Lossiemouth, Moray.
