Watch and learn one way how to use comics in your ESL classroom

For this activity:

  • Take a blank piece of paper and divide it into sections as a comic strip would be.
  • Photocopy it and hand one out to each of your students.
  • Have your students create a comic strip. You can give them a topic. Here we used "housework" as it was the topic of the lesson. You could probably find a more exciting topic to use it with too.
  • Have them create their comic strip.

This activity for using comic strips requires more imagination than "Comics I", so you can give them some clues on the board, like laundry, dishes, trash, etc. And you could also add some questions like, "Who does the ____? Do you like doing ___? Do you have any disagreements about ____? What happens if you don't do ___?".

"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
