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.
