20+ Tips and Resources to Engage Learners with Comics : Teacher Reboot Camp

20+ Tips and Resources to Engage Learners with Comics : Teacher Reboot Camp | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

by Shelly Terrell

 

"Comics can be powerful learning tools. The mix of art, dialogue, character expressions, and frames engages learners and is brain-friendly. Moreover, comics break down a story’s plot and text into bite-sized chunks that are supported with visuals.

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, January 1, 2014 8:35 AM

teacher professional development should get the same support that coding did. How can one teach what they don't know , content, and use tools proficiently without some support ?

Terry Doherty's curator insight, January 2, 2014 4:21 PM

Comics or graphic novels ... whatever you call them, stories told in "panels" are a great way to not only encourage reading, but keep kids reading. 

 

Just as we choose magazines over novels sometimes, kids want different things at different times!

Thanks for the suggestion to Alfredo Corell.

Mini Metric Olympics

Students in Grade 4 are studying metric measurement in math class with Mrs. Tappert and Mrs. Finlay. Yesterday afternoon, they participated in the Mini Metric Olympics.

 

Students rotated through seven stations where they completed a task and estimated and measured results in metric units. Stations were: Cotton Ball Shot Put, Marble Grab, Sponge Squeeze, Big Foot, Crab Crawl, Paper Plate Discus and Straw Javelin Throw. What a great hands-on way to learn math! Enjoy this slideshow of the afternoon!

Does your child type using the home row strategy or is it "hunt and peck"? These fun sites can be a great way to learn this basic skill that they need for online learning.
