  • I like this because I can learn a lot by reading a number of issues appeared here. As a non-native English speaker with a different back group, I’m happy to state that it is possible to collect numerous things from this. I love learning English as a basic-requirement of my life, so I always explore (surf) internet to find new meadow lands. Good Luck!

  • 14. Images, words, Creative writing ideas Collaborative comic feelings Using words and pictures together in groups: IDEA 2 Choose a theme the class has been studying and which, preferably, “helps students to tap into memories and feelings”. You can provide some vocabulary and/or grammar structures if you want to focus on form. Next give random images to each group and they must create their stories around the images in comic form using both captions and speech bubbles to build up the background narrative and introduce dialogue.
  • 15. Self-expression Creative writing ideas Collaborative comic Vocabulary and feelings: IDEA 3 Make a list of „feeling‟ words that you‟d like to teach your students. Your aim is to develop their self-expression and self-awareness through creativity. Here‟s a sample list. Angry, sad, embarrassed, frustrated, bored, excited, jealo us etc. For more advanced students create a more sophisticated word list. I wrote a story based on feelings from „nonviolent communication‟ – a language of life – Marshall B. Rosenburg. Find ‘Natural English through story-telling on amazon.
  • 16. New imaginary Creative writing comic Collaborative experiences ideas Vocabulary and feelings: Students create comic strip stories in groups based on their list of „feeling‟ words. This is a wonderful collaborative activity because in doing so, students are really sharing their perceptions and memories of feelings and combining them to create new imaginary experiences. The MakeBeliefsComix.com site also lets students choose facial expressions for their characters. When all of the stories are created, each group can act out their story for the class and then reveal their comic strips.

That‟s the power of comics in helping dyslexic students to read and write. Make stories come to life. From comic to drama. This could be from a real comic, one you created especially, or one they created themselves. This idea incorporates drama with something I learnt from a recent webinar with luke Prodromou. Create a magic box for the class where students bring in their favourite soft toys or puppets and keep them in the box. Students create skits or puppet shows to act out stories from the comic.
