Tap Into the World of Comics is a Slideshare presentation by S. Hendy. It not only gives examples of sites for creating comics, along with their links, but also offers 26 suggestions for ways to integrate comics with the curriculum. Presented in the form of a comic, the slide show is visually interesting as well as a creative and valuable resource for educators.
Apparently, I really like this site. I keep coming across it in my Bookmarks and Favorites on several different computers, as well as my online bookmarking site. One reason I like this site is because my students like it. They enjoy the different comic templates and the choices of characters and scenes. Another reason that this site is appealing is because it offers alternatives for those who may not have access to many computers. If you don’t want to have your students create the comics online, there are many printables offered by the site, which could also be used for planning out the cartoons. In addition, there are Teacher Resources (I like that the page is titled “How to Play) with 20 suggestions for using comics in the classroom, and there is a link to Writer Prompts.
