My Take

Encourages deep thought and understanding of serious concepts in order to transform them into humorous comic strips. Thoughtful assignment design is important to successful use of this tool.

How I Use It

Students create comic strips that describe/explain/involve various concepts in chemistry. The students were engaged and would have spent hours playing and designing comic strips. Students emailed their work to me when it was completed. A genre study of comic strips would probably have helped the students create comic strips more true to the style.
