Creating Comic Strips. ArtsEdge Curricula, Lessons and Activities.
State, Chico
In society, information/ideas are communicated through various media (words, symbols, illustrations, etc.). When analyzing comic strips, it is noticeable that each has a different style, point of view, setting, plot, and summary, communicated not only through words, but through illustrations and style--creating comic strips can summarize various ideas through illustrations that otherwise could not be expressed through words alone. This lesson (lasting 3-4 class periods) intends for students to first evaluate various comic strips and then to create their own comic strips. The lesson offers an overview; suggests length and grade level; lists subjects and subtopics; cites dimensions of learning and intelligences being addressed; notes equipment and materials needed; lists teacher resources; and addresses National Standards for Arts Education. It identifies instructional objectives and strategies; provides a detailed, step-by-step instructional plan; presents a scoring rubric; and suggests an extension activity. (NKA)
