By focusing on a step-by-step process of how to create a comic and understanding how to form a story (focus on sequence of events), students are creating their own 1 page comic. Each student decides how to divide the space provided and creates a story from a series of prompts from their experience in the gallerires or an imagined journey to the Himalayas.
One teacher at this workshop commented that this project tied in neatly with their English curriculum- in which students were learning about sequence and how to create a story. A second teacher left the workshop excited to look at ways to incorporate comics into her end of year curriculum wrap-up project! (I can’t wait to see this either!)
Stay tuned for more as we gather more complete comics from this new workshop!
