Comic Strip

A Comic Strip uses information to inform the illustration of and dialogue between characters in a plot driven story that builds a hero or team of heroes. The Comic Strip commonly uses dialogue to dramatize and/or simplify complex issues. Humorous Comic Strips build a situation that ends with a punch line.

Rationale: Research demonstrates that synthesizing information, or taking information and creating new and independent work, increases understanding and retention.

Instructions: Fill at least one piece of 8 ½ x 11 paper with at least six frames. Be sure that all dialogue is clearly written. Write captions that help the reader understand.
