DCC Eighth Grade Creates Superheroes to Learn about Catholic Social Teaching

Daniel Cooley, Staff Writer

Recently, Mrs. Jodi Stewart was teaching her eighth grade theology class about the Seven Themes of Catholic Social Teaching. With this, Mrs. Stewart gave her students an assignment where the class had to design their own Superhero based on one of the specific teachings. With their Hero, they had to include a name, a symbol, a catchphrase, and a super power.

Along with this, they also had to create an arch nemesis for the hero. The nemesis had to fight against social justice with the power of social sin. Some of the students chose to have their heroes work together and form their own “social justice league”

The students created a myriad of different characters with varying powers and personalities that related to their teachings and overall had a great and interactive time on the assignment.
