Does your child like comic books or graphic novels? Have they shown an interest in drawing? Maybe they enjoy telling stories, but don’t care much for writing. This class can help embrace those interests while showing them how to tell a story using pictures and dialogue, giving them a healthy creative outlet. Using easy to follow step-by-step instructions (with visuals), students will combine intermediate story elements including the use of narrative language, problem & solution, adjectives,...
Participants will improve their ability to create a well developed story using comic book elements.
I have experience with appropriate reading materials for these age groups from being a reading intervention teacher. I am also skilled at managing these conversations if students struggle with respecting these limits.
The goal is to inspire students so much that they will want to continue working on their comics, and make others after this class!
Learners will be provided a variety of comic templates to choose from and may print or recreate them on plain white paper. They will also want a ruler, a regular pencil with a good eraser, and a set of colored pencils. Extra paper for mistakes would be helpful.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students may choose to include fighting scenes in their comics when we discuss the use of onomatopoeia’s like POW, or BAM. However students will be discouraged to use weapons in their stories (if it comes up).
