PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Develop Synthesis Skills Without Lengthy Reading Passsages

Comic Strips make great high-interest reading material for the middle school grades. They are a lot of fun to work with because they don’t require a huge volume of reading, yet require higher-level thinking in order to decode the humour. My unit on comic strips is one of my most popular language arts units with students.

Unfortunately I can’t include the actual strip examples I use in my lessons due to copyright issues; however, examples are very easily obtained online, from the newspaper or even from anthology books. Sometimes I even get students to collect strips and bring them in. Finding the strip examples will be the only additional prepwork required by the teacher – everything else is included.

This unit plan includes 14 lessons, several of which have included handouts to accompany them (marked with an H on the lesson breakdown). The lessons that do not have handouts don’t need any – they are easily completed based on the instructions. The main assessments for the unit are a scrapbook that the students put all of their work and examples in (this can be collected and marked a few times over the course of the unit) and the reading analysis test. Rubrics for both reading and writing assessments are included in the unit.

The lessons also include activities for shared, guided & independent reading & writing, so they satisfy the requirements for balanced literacy at this grade level.

This unit plan could be easily integrated into your visual arts program as well by completing lessons on the comic strip style of cartooning; this would enhance the quality of the original strips your students create.
