Teaching students writing, story elements and more through comics

Thanks to Bill Zimmerman and Tom Bloom for sharing their website Make Beliefs Comix on FreeReading. This allows users to easily make their own comic strips using the 15 site characters. Users can adjust their characters emotions as well as add speech and thought bubbles. This is a great resource for teachers that want to teach young students about language, story elements, reading, writing, computer skills and more. Check it out!

    Hi, I am a writing teacher at a school for the deaf. I use ComicLife from plasq. The kids take pictures of themselves, their friends, family, clay characters, scan in drawn characters and create a very cool comic book, strip or storyboard. It is an amazing tool for the deaf as it is so very visual. I use it for brainstorming, organizing, summaries, etc. We even made a script with it for drama class as I have reading levels that range from pre-K to post-college. Hope this is helpful!
