Vega, Edwin S.; Schnackenberg, Heidi L.
Association for Educational Communications and Technology, 27th, Chicago, IL, Oct 19-23, 2004
Although commonly considered something that is for "after school" and best left out of the K-12 curriculum, the creation of comic books incorporate several skills from multiple academic curricula. This paper outlines two summer programs, one offered to ages nine through 15 year olds and another offered to 15 through 18 year olds. The programs teach students how to create their own digital comic book and emphasize proper writing skills, storyline development, fine arts skills, and the use of scanning, graphic design software, and page-layout design.
