[excerpt] French immersion students were treated to sessions in comics by well known Quebecois author and illustrator Paul Roux on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Roux was in classrooms with all ages of students, spending Tuesday morning at J.H. Sissons and the afternoon in William McDonald Middle School. The better part of Wednesday, Roux spent with students at Ecole Allain St. Cyr.
Roux was able to come to Yellowknife for these student sessions because J.H. Sissons and Ecole Allain St. Cyr are both members of Communication-Jeunesse, a non-profit organization based in Quebec that aims to promote Quebec literature for French-Canadian youth. As a member of Communication-Jeunesse, Yk 1 school district is able to invite francophone authors to Yellowknife for talks and demonstrations with students. Last year was the first that Yk 1 participated.
Paul Roux travelled to Yellowknife from Gatineau, Que. His medium is focused mainly on comic strips, writing as well as illustrating. Roux is a busy man, having written more than 50 children's books and illustrated more than 100. He averages six to seven published books a year.
"When you create your characters in comic strips, I like to see it through myself. But I do collaborate, sometimes I will get text for a book and just do the illustrations," said Roux.
Literacy coach for Yk 1, Caroline Roux, albeit having a familiar surname is of no relation to the author, says the students spend some time studying the authors before they come.
"It's a nice way to promote reading and inspire students. We are very lucky to have a French-Canadian author come speak."
The Comic Creator is an interactive tool that invites students to compose their own comic strips for a variety of contexts.
Grupo Olympus's insight:
Esta ferramenta também é muito simples! É so ir seguindo os passos, clicando nas setinhas para descobrir os vários personagens e paisagens. Muito legal! E é em preto em branco, o que da uma diferenciada no trabalho!
A melhor maneira para criar e compartilhar quadrinhos
Grupo Olympus's insight:
Embora seja sempre questionável algo (ou alguém) que se autoproclame "o melhor" em sua categoria, este site parece ser uma opção para a criação de HQ's. O que me chamou a atenção foi o fato de ter interface em Português e apresentar possibilidades gráficas interessantes. (André Duval)
Very useful hints/steps. I liked the video a lot. Besides, many children during the class start drawing on their notebooks/books, so it would be a great time to create a comic strip. What do you think? (Larissa Monteiro)
