Re-writing stories in Comic book form

Just because it's reading follow-up doesn't mean they can't write!

As part of our term inquiry into sequential art, and comic books my learners are re-writing journal stories in comic book form. This simple task has many scaffolding qualities that will support their own story telling later in their own writing.

There are plenty of comic book creators out there. I have been using an Arthur one on PBS Kids, but I have looked at also using this Marvel one, and Make Beliefs Comix.

Learners simply replace characters from the story with characters on the Arthur comic site. Depending on the length of the story learners re-write certain scenes or pages.

Best bit, is the kids love it!
