    Creating Comic Strips // Janet Anders

    I often introduce story writing by having the students use comics I have cut out and discuss them. Then I have them draw their own. Next, I have them use their strip as the inspiration for a story. They don't have to use their own comic, they may use another student's if that is how their "muse" is working.

This ARTSEDGE lesson looks at the way, as a society, we communicate information/ideas through various mediums (words, symbols, illustrations, etc). When analyzing comic strips, students notice that each has a different style, point of view, setting, plot, and summary, communicated not only through words, but through illustrations. By creating comic strips, students communicate ideas that cannot be expressed through words alone.
