If you are looking for a way for students to prove their understanding of what caused the American Revolution, then this is it. As students write the script for the comic book, they suddenly get an understanding that they did not have prior. Students put voice with people from the time period and bring the American Revolution to life. By the time they are complete, your class will have an eight chapter comic book about the people and events that created Independence of the United States. This activity includes a scoring rubric, timeline checklist, and eight chapters with topics that are chronological so when the comic book is complete, you have a graphic novel timeline of the causes of the American Revolution. This book is a GREAT resource for your resource students after it is complete. The comic gives them an easy and fun way to strengthen their understanding of the American Revolution. I use Comic Life program with my students, but any comic book software online or download will work.
