Fun with Comics

Check out this amazing story about Mitchell Reiner and his Superhero Club at Eagle Ridge Elementary, Coral Springs, Florida. (Nirvi Shah reports for the Miami Herald)

Reiner, who just won a grant from the Airborne people to take his project school-wide, divides the kids into groups, gives them a super hero, a villain, and a location, and tells them to go. The kids then craft a story in comic book form, while Reiner advises.

Super cool teaching project. Great article, with audio clips of the kids at work included.
