Grading rubric
Comic book pages to create the comic books

Students read their text. At the end of each chapter students record a summary for the chapter. Included in this product are multiple examples of summary pages that can be used (or use your own graphic organizer).

After recording all of the chapter summaries, students then use the summaries to create their graphic novel/comic book. Each summary becomes a box on the graphic novel page. Then, they've created their own graphic novel version of their book!
