For this assignment, students will conduct research on the causes of World War I to create a minimum of a six-frame comic strip based on one of the MAIN causes of World War I. Students may use the Internet to find appropriate graphics and design your comic on the computer OR they may draw the comic strip.
Students will be assigned different World War I causes to research. Students will then condense their research into a 6-frame comic strip. There is an example of a computer-created comic strip in the directions.
The students will work in groups and use their individually created comics to teach their classmates about the cause that they researched. There is a graphic organizer provided for students to take notes on when they work with their groups.
If the computers are not available, the teacher can provide printed reading materials for the student.
A rubric is included for grading this assignment.
