Online comics for WL class

3 Jun

Assigning creation of an online is a great way to assess students understanding of vocabulary and structure.  Get them writing in a fun and imaginative way.  It is something that we do occasionally in the computer lab, but it always an option in their homework Matriz.

Always make sure to offer a checklist or short rubric of what should be included (current vocab, grammar structures, questions…).  Most can be emailed to the teacher or printed out.
I have also taught the students to do a print screen then paste into Paint, crop around the comic and save as a .jpg.  The next step would be to post it on their wiki page.

Here are my favorites.  Let me know if you know of others:

Make Beliefs Comix: My favorite.  Can print or email.  Scroll to the bottom for lots of resources and free printables!

Marvel Create Your Own ComicSave as pdf file or print

Strip generator: finished comic can be emailed or printed

Domo Animate: animated comic generator

Here are also some comics in Spanish that you can use for reading and vocabulary practice:

Tiras Cómicas: from Zachary Jones

Gaturro: Comic strips from Argentina

Happy comic making!
