Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Sequencing through Comic Strips - Section 3: Guided Practice


I have taught this lesson for many years, however, because of common core I wanted to try something a more ‘rigorous’ than retelling the story in their journals. I was prepared for excitement.  I was not prepared for the several students who did not know what a comic strip was.  I was caught off guard, because I just assumed all kids knew what a comic strip was.  To explain I used examples of super heroes, once I mentioned a few super heroes, several students were able to jump in and explain what a comic book was.  I am one of the few dinosaurs who still enjoy reading the newspaper, and just so happened to have one in my car, which I retrieved during the recess break.  Once my students saw the comic section they all had a better understanding of what a comic strip is.
