Comics for Engaging Students! 22+ Resources & Ideas

“At a young age, I was interested in comic books, which was really how I learnt to read.” – Nicolas Cage

Today, I will be conducting a webinar, Teaching with Comics, for Simple K12. I wanted to share the resources from the presentation in case you can’t join us. Comics can be powerful learning tools. They are brain friendly. The visuals help support struggling readers and language learners. The frames break up the reading into chunks and students can get a general understanding about the plot, subject matter, characters and themes from the visuals. Many comic creation tools are free, easy to use and allow learners to choose from a library of characters, props, scenes, speech bubbles, and templates. Your learners will be able to quickly create a story, view it, and share it. Creating comics engages students and encourages them to explore vocabulary, summarize information, and contextualize what they learn in a creative way. Download the slides and bookmark the following tips and resources. Don’t forget to join me for a free online technology learning day with other experts. Register for free!
