Class theme/topics discussed:
Comic Strip Story
How did you pick this theme or topic?
To ask students to practice describing pictures and then try to figure out the sequence of a story without looking each other’s pictures by discussing.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
Handouts, group work, open discussion
How did students react?
They love to describe pictures and a student plays a role as the sectary to take notes about what they said. It also make them have a good conversation while trying to figure out the sequence of the story.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Why or why not?
It’s a good way to make conversation. However, it’s better to tell the sectary that he/she needs to write down each students’ name as well as their description. It would be easier for them to discuss the sequence by saying”Mary’s picture should be the first one or Tom’s picture should be the second one, etc…”
