Freshmen A & B: From legends to superheroes

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:
