After a month and a half long unit, our writers have worked many skills and elements that they include in their writing (i.e. dialogue, thinking, and setting descriptions). This comic strip activity provides students with continued practice and application of what they've been learning in a new, creative way!
The students will become Comic Strip creators. Comic Strip artists only have so many boxes to fill before they run out of room. In those boxes, comic book artists, must “Show Not Tell” the scene, include dialogue between characters, and show what the characters are thinking to give readers more information about what they are feeling or what is going on.
This file includes the student letter/criteria, the comic strip layout, an example, and the rubric. The actual student letter even includes possible topics to write about for students who need a little jumpstart!
Please note: My student packet usually includes a Superman comic and a Garfield comic on the front. I am not sure if it is allowed to be posted so I removed them but it looks awesome when it's on the page. If someone knows whether I can put it up on TpT with the two comics (they are minimized and unable to be read but you can tell what character/cartoon it is), please let me know. I can email it to you if you've purchased or update my attachment if it's allowed.
