Rachel Karnowski's curator insight, April 16, 2016 9:17 AM
Comic strips provide a perfect vehicle for learning and practicing the English language. Each strip's three or four panels provides a finite, accessible world in which funny, interesting looking characters go about their lives. And students with limited reading or speaking skills are not as overwhelmed in dealing with the size of a comic strip as they may be with a book of many page

Bitstrips has been around for a long time, but is still a “goodie” in Langenhorst’s opinion. It’s a tool that allows students to summarize or display what they know by choosing characters and constructing scenes. “When you have all these different tools, you just have to think about what standards you are trying to meet and choose based on that,” Langenhorst said.
