For Educators | 21 Ways to Use MakeBeliefsComix.com in the Classroom - 7 views

  • 3. Promote Team Collaboration

    Have students break up into pairs or group teams to create their comic strips together. This approach encourages teamwork and cooperation, with students complementing the skills of their colleagues. The site also provides a structure for students to work individually as they create their own cartoon worlds using their imaginations. Look upon the site as a resource for literacy development and to reach out to engage reluctant writers and readers.

      This would be a great exercise to illustrate class rules developed by the class. In the science lab, the lab teams could create different strips for lab safety. This is a really cool tool with a lot of potential.
  • 6. Foreign Language Practice

    Have students who are learning new foreign languages write their text in languages they are studying. In addition to English, the site accepts characters and accent marks from languages such as Spanish, Latin, German, Italian and Portuguese. Additional languages will be added to the site in the future.

    This will be great for my arty students who don't enjoy writing in the traditional sense. I like #19 - explore character motivation- a high level reading skill in a simple format.
