Teaching with The Avengers
Another block buster movie debuted last weekend. I will admit I have not seen it (nor am I an Avenger expert), but a lot of people including your students have. The Avengers provides another way to connect to your students’ interests using popular culture. I know that comic books and their characters appeal to many of our learners. Take advantage of this timely opportunity to make learning fun. Below are some lesson ideas and resources for creating your own learning activities. Notice the new Mad Money Skills activities for teaching economic literacy.
And there came a day unlike any other, when earth’s mightiest heroes were united against a common threat! On that day the Avengers were born! — To fight the foes no single hero could withstand!
