"Boys of Steel" lesson plan

An enterprising teacher I met in Ohio developed an impressive (elementary level) lesson plan for Boys of Steel: The Creators of Superman. He kindly gave me permission to share it with other interested teachers.

I also have my own list of classroom activities a teacher can use to supplement the book and tie it in with curriculum.
Among the relevant units are the Great Depression, World War II, biography, and creative writing. Sites including the Graphic Classroom have additional suggestions and insight.

If either are of interest, email me and I'll email the material. (You don't even have to be a teacher.)

Addendum: A year after this posted, I saved you a step by posting my curriculum guide. (Please still contact me for the lesson plan!)
