Tool #5 Comic Strip


  1. How could you use this with students in the classroom?

  2. Currently, I am using this as part of a my characterization unit for my 8th grade Reading Lab. In this piece, their character has to not only reveal their "symbolic issue" but the student has to show me the 5 plot elements as well. (Prior to creating this comic strip, my students spent time creating their own superheros or super-villians.) I like to use tools such as this in my Reading Lab to help with the harder concepts.
