Secondary Division Report

Published in NAEA News - August/September 2017

Even though this will be published in August, my thoughts are focused on the end of the school year. This time of year can be tough. The students often lose focus and teachers (including myself ) often lose motivation as the sweet relief of summer edges closer. It can be very hard to stay motivated, stay on task, and push students to learn and create until the very end. Teachers have different strategies to get through that final push, but for me, I fall back on my love of superheroes—and with the summer movie season starting (or ending, as you read this) there will no doubt be a number of superhero movies and related media coming at everyone from every direction, and I thought I might write a bit on why I think superheroes are an important part of our culture and how what they stand for helps me stay motivated at times like this during the school year.
