Learn an easy way how to use comics in the ESL classroom
How to use comics:
Find a comic strip and photocopy it.
Whiteout the text in it.
Copy it again.
Make a copy for all of your students.
Have them write their own story.
You can have them write it in a specific tense or it could be a free activity.
It's important that you find age appropriate comics. This activity will work especially well with adolescents. As they will enjoy writing their "own" story as they see it. I would use it for the lower intermediate level and above as beginners may not yet have sufficient vocabulary to write much of a story. You can correct it as they work on it.
"Hi Ian! I loved the course! It wasn't really difficult, but it was not easy - and I feel like I learned a lot. I definitely plan to continue using the resources. I have applied for and set up over 7 interviews already in China. If you add on various additional certs, like Young learners and what not I would take those. I plan to take a job in China and blog about it for the year to qualify for the 1000 hour cert. Thanks so much for an awesome learning experience" - Sandra Dee Bonadonna, TEFL 120
