Comic Strip

Creative writing provides a great opportunity to use your imagination to write a story. But sitting down and writing is not always easy. For some students it’s hard to know where the story starts. Others have an idea, but they just don’t know how to get a whole story out of it. One way to help students get organized and make their story idea a real story is to use a graphic organizer. The format can help students that are struggling understand what to do and help them present a product they’re proud of. Comic strips present a short story or a joke in a fun form. A comic strip form is a graphic organizer that helps your students present their story idea and makes it a success. The pictures allow students who love to draw a place to show their creativity. The limited writing space can help students in several ways. For students who find writing to be a chore, a small writing space feels like a relief. For students who tend to be wordy, the limited space encourages practice with word choice, culling their ideas down to include only the most important. When the comic strip is complete, your students will have an organized and creative piece of writing to share with pride.
