Comic Book (Mini Project)


I created a comic book in Spanish about a student's daily routine, La rutina diaria de Tommy (Tommy's daily routine) as an example for my students because they will be creating their own Spanish comic books. Creating  a comic book using Comic Life 2 is a fun and engaging activity where my students can practice their Spanish writing and speaking skills.This activity will be appealing to my students because they will create a comic book  where they will describe their daily routines and find or draw images that match their descriptions. From experience I know students enjoy talking about themselves which makes the learning and application more pleasant for them. In addition, when my students create comic books in Spanish it allows me to asses them in a variety of ways since  my students will be writing sentences and short paragraphs in Spanish, they will be reading another classmate's Spanish comic book and they will present their comic books to the class using Spanish. 

I plan for my students to create many comic books using Comic Life 2 to help them practice their Spanish writing and speaking skills.  For example, when my students are learning the Spanish past tense they can create comic books using only the past tense.
