Narrative Cartoons. Water in Africa.
The Water in Africa Project was realized over a 2-year period by a team of Peace Corps volunteers, World Wise Schools (WWS) classroom teachers, and WWS staff members. As part of an expanded, detailed design, resources were collected from over 90 volunteers serving in African countries, photos and stories were prepared, and standards-based learning units were created for K-12 students. This unit, "Narrative Cartoons," is intended for use with students in grades 9-12. The unit is designed to draw on the interest of young people in cartoons and to introduce students to techniques of creating alternative styles. Students create a narrative cartoon, or a set of sequentially placed images that tell a story. It may depict one activity or be a collage of various activities. The unit suggests a timeframe, curricular areas, materials needed, standards, discussion questions, objectives, detailed procedures, assessment information, and additional resources. Attached are a narrative cartoon comparison chart, a research sheet, and a narrative cartoon evaluation rubric. (BT)
