Site Review: DC Comics Fan Family

Site URL: DCComicsFanFamily.com

Content:  Teachers will find printables, activities, contests and more—all featuring the well-known superheroes in the DC Comics stable.

Design: The site’s standard blog setup uses a Facebook-like timeline where each post alternates between the left and right side of the page. Also, as on Facebook, integrated ads are made to look like posts.

Review:  The DC Comics Fan Family blog offers a variety of content including DC Comics-themed activity sheets, DIY craft projects, guest blog posts featuring DC Comics talent, creative submission contests and more.

This site displays a considerable amount of advertising and news about product releases. So while it offers some good content that is certainly appropriate for the classroom, it isn’t something you’ll want to have students visiting during school hours. Educators can, however, collect plenty of Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman-themed materials to bring to class.

Bottom Line:  These superhero-themed classroom materials offer a change of pace and some extra potential for student engagement.
