today we completed the lesson about the definition of a super hero with the example of Superman. Here is what you had to write:
Superman is a hero because...:
- he wants to save the world (he "pledges to champion truth, justice, and the American way").
- he has super powers:
he can leap tall buildings = he is able to jump over buildings
he can bend steel in his bare hands = he is extremely strong
he can outrun speeding locomotives = He is able to run very fast
-> He has awesome abilities = He is able to do extraordinary things = He is no ordinary man.
- he leads a double life:
he is a reporter for a newspaper, an ordinary person (a “mild-mannered reporter”).
his alter ego is Superman, a hero with powers.
- he wears a costume / an outfit:
he wears a cape, a skin-tight bodysuit with a belt, boots and an emblem on his torso.
Then we continued the lesson with this document: it's the interview of a man who talks about his favorite super hero. We'll continue this next time.
Here are some of the notes we jotted down on the board:
WHO / WHERE / WHEN / WHAT / HOW / WHY
A man - teenager (young adolescent boy) - favorite
Peter Parker / normal person - reporter - photographer
Spiderman / alter ego
