Q: Is this resource editable?

A: We are not currently offering this as editable.  For this reason, we have provided a number of options of templates.

Q: Does this include lesson plans?

A: This is intentionally a very open-ended resource.  We have provided a brief outline of some possible activities to introduce, complete and assess the comic strips as a stand-alone unit.  However, the templates can be used in so many ways in all subject areas!  Therefore, you will not find detailed, specific lesson plans.
