An Austin elementary school teacher created a lesson plan using superhero powers to help teach complicated theories in subjects like physics and biology. Soon the lesson plan could be used by teachers all over the world.
Joy Lin teaches math at Linder Elementary and she also trains fellow teachers.
Prior to this, Lin worked at the Travis County Detention Center teaching math and science to juveniles. That is where she developed a lesson plan using superheroes and their powers to get kids interested in the subjects.
As of now, her lesson plan is only in text form, but soon it will be animated.
"Specifically physics and biology and chemistry, these three are usually the ones we use the most with superheroes," Lin . Especially physics with flying and anything with strength and force. Everything we do is scientifically relatable to all these lessons."
Lin's lesson was only one of the 18 in the country selected to developed into an animated video.
This is her first year as an elementary school teacher, but she hopes to develop the plan so that it could eventually be used with her younger students.
