Here is a wonderful free site that will assist teachers with their new instructional strategies.  http://pixton.com/

Here students can use the format for creating a comic book to demosntrate what they have learned by producing a comic book displaying the student’s understanding of the subject.

There are other software programs such as comic life. This software has a yearly fee. I find this a good program but then you have to continue the fee to maintain the upgrades. Comic books are a media tool that can help students become organized in their thinking and creative in employing their  communcation skills, such as grammar and spelling.

So have fun

    Comics are a truly a creative medium and work really well in enhancing student communication skills or to test their understanding on any subject.

    You can also try ToonDoo, an easy-to-use comic strip creator with loads of cool features. Your students will love it!
