Lurid.com has an all-new series with acclaimed illustrator P. Craig Russell discussing graphic storytelling and sequential art. In the debut installment, he looks at the opening page of his comics adaptation of Pelléas & Mélisande. Check back for a new segment every Monday!
It is described as:
When students retell a book, their words are captured in Comic Life. In a guided reading group setting I want students to be able to reflect on and see their retell in a tangible way. Typing the retell words a child says into a Comic Life document helps them see their thoughts and reflect on them. It gives the teacher the opportunity to revisit what they said, to notice their strengths in the retell and point out and train the student in the areas where they are weaker. The Comic Life retell is sent home with the student so the child’s parent can be informed of the retell skills their child focused on that day and to continue practicing those skills at home.
I use ComicLife all the time with my elementary students. Have a look. There is more to do than the above.
