Christina Moorehead showed super skills in creating the curriculum connections for using CAPE, MASK, and BOOTS in the classroom. Check out her clever and fun "League of  Secret Heroes" teacher's guides by clicking on the covers. And if your students create their own superheroes or spotlight superheroes in their lives, please share their videos with me!
