We all know that writing and creating stories help learners to consolidate vocabulary as well as grammar. However, the learners are not always so keen on doing it. Maybe creating a cartoon or comics will interest them more.

There are two ways you could do a cartoon lesson.

Option One: If you do not have frequent access to computers during your classes, you can ask your learners to draw their own comics. I recommend Students’Comics , where in the section ‘Read comics online’ you find three galleries with students comics. It may encourage your learners to create their own comics as well as give them ideas on how to do it.

To find out how you can start your work, evaluate and publish your comics go to Webquest. You can also download the comics in pdf.

 

 

Option Two: You can create your online comicstrip by going to Stripgenerator . In the create a strip  section you can choose characters, bubbles and type in your own text. If you want to add it to your strip gallery you need to register.
