Teaching Classic Literature with Comic Books and Virtual Lit Trips
Sardone, Nancy B.
English Journal, v102 n1 p67-70 Sep 2012
This article describes the assignments the author created to engage preservice teachers in designing instructional materials that befit today's students to help them overcome hurdles sometimes present when learning classic literature. Secondary and middle school English teachers may find these assignments useful as well so their students, too, have a chance to experience the stories of classic literature and to invest in the timeless characters found within. Using student-created examples, the author demonstrates how comic-book creation and Google Earth can help students develop deeper connections to classic literary figures. (Contains 3 figures.)
