This is an EDITABLE, CCSS-aligned superhero unit for grades 6-12. I have included a sample unit plan with three main, flexible assignments. This is the PERFECT end-of-the-year or pre-break assignment. Students will use the hero’s arc to see how most superheroes get their start (origin stories). I integrate origin story films to help teach this. They will research superheroes online, then create a hero (or villain) of their own. They conclude by making their own comic book for their hero or villain. This is a fun project that can be expanded or condensed, is high-interest, and teaches elements of literature and the heroic tradition.
