The Hero’s Journey template helped me to plan out a linear equation discovery lesson on “When will the Cell Phone be Charged?” Through estimating and the Noticing and Wondering opener, students would be building tension to figure out what they are going to be asked. Once given more information in the the form of several screenshots of a charging phone which includes % charged and time, students can start to see more information that can be useful. Students reach the top of the tension curve when they can use their algebra skills and the Desmos graphing tool to help figure out the answer. This form of build-up leads to engagement of the students.
