Strategies for using Comics
     in the Classroom
Comics have always
been associated with
 fun and creativity.




                       With the help of many
                       online applications and
                          resources, there are
                       some great ways to tap
                        into the excitement of
                        comics to help engage
                         students in learning.
The comic making process itself offers many
     learning opportunities and with the
incorporation of content delivery, comics can
  provide an effective tool for teaching and
                  learning.

                      images            The Movies
Students can extend
       their knowledge of a
       poem by interpreting
        it into visual form
           using a comic.




                 Ballads, in particular,
                 can be very successful
                      in this task.


                                            You
Or..                                       could

                                           poem
                                                    Yeah!
                                                    Using
                                                   comics
                                                            The Movies
This can be done
                        using relevant
                            images           or using a
                                           comic creator          Such as
                                            which offers
                                          graphics which   http://www.creaza.com/
Students can explore                        are needed
 events from history
and adapt them into
    comic form.




                                                              http://www.creaza.com/
Comics are a great
  way to create
interest to a boring
       page.




   Teachers can use comics
       to add interest to
    worksheets, hand outs,
  professional development
  activities, add to a virtual
     classroom or deliver
    content using comics.

                                 My Sims
Students can learn
 about internet safety
 and demonstrate their
knowledge by creating a
  comic which explores
 internet safety rules.



Here are some examples
  which are also great
     teaching tools.

                 of the great graphics
                available in many of the
               online comic creators and
                  use them to create
                         designs.

Why not use comics to write reports or                       Yeah! That will make it
               reviews.                                       fun and engaging for
