How I Use It
I use comic strip creation for different writing units. Voice or Tone is such a hard trait of writing to teach but using characters in comic strips helps build understanding of that concept. Students find it easier to change tone with a character than to write a long assignment trying to emphasize voice.
For upper level classes it would be nice to have a page option for "story" length writing assignments. Besides that, students love using this site. It is easy to navigate. Tons of options for backgrounds, characters, and special items.
