Today we looked at how older legends became a few of the superheroes we know today. We specifically looked at the three below: Superman, Wonder Woman and Thor.
Also, we looked at the rubric for your first project of the year. Your rough draft is due in a week (9/15/14). Hero creative writing rubric
In a group, students chose either Superman, Wonder Woman and Thor and compared the myth they came from to the superhero we know:
Sensation Comics #1
All Star Comics #8
Wonder Woman 101
At the end of class we made a chart that compared the myths/legends to today’s heroes. Use these stories to help you figure out what kind of hero you’ll want to create a story around.
