One of the most successful lessons I taught was during my time at Westchester Middle School during my student teaching assignment. We were covering the Illinois State Constitution, and we were specifically talking about the Executive Branch. I wanted to compose a lesson that would make understanding and memorizing these officers and their powers creative, fun, and easily memorizable. Prior to composing the unit I had asked my class about what they were interested in outside of school, many of which, boys and girls stated that they were interested in super hero movies and comics. I used this to create a lesson that required groups of 4 to 5 students, modified of course for skill-sets, social dynamics, and emotional needs to create a superhero that demonstrated the powers of that particular assigned position. An example was the Governator, he/she could sign or veto bills with her lightning rod pen! The kids loved it, and they stated that making those posters made remembering the Executive Branch on the test very simple.
