This activity is an excellent way to evaluate students' skills on plot. After reading a story or even a novel, students break down the plot into a comic strip!
The document includes 4 comic strips - 2 for shorter stories and 2 for longer novels. Use all or one! The activity also includes a response sheet that asks students to explain their boxes and how they demonstrate each element of plot. Finally, a rubric for grading is provided.
I've also given some tips based on past experiences. Kids really enjoy it!
