This is my fifth (in a series of five) PowerPoint which utilizes Garfield comics to teach inferencing. Using comics, for instructional purposes, is highly engaging and effective. As you begin to use these Garfield comic strips consistently, you will observe your students not only strengthening their inferencing skills, but they will begin to"catch" Garfield's subtleties and actually develop a fondness for his endearing, self-deprecating humor! These can be utilized as a group activity/discussion or a daily writing activity. I incorporate one comic a day into the students' morning writing activity. I encourage you to take a look at the other four PowerPoints as well! Enjoy!
