presentation to work through the first
comic with your class. Then let them work
in teams on the second one.

Teaching Reading/Writing:

Allow students to read the comics with
partners taking turns per frame. Encourage them to use expression as they read.
Then allow them to write the comic as
a story on a sheet of notebook paper.
The final draft should be 5 paragraphs: Introduction, Rising Action, Climax, Falling Action, Resolution.
