Strip Generator

Using Strip Generator is a unique and fun way to let students get creative to portray some sort of broader idea or message. For my strip, Reading Gibberish I tried to promote the idea that reading in another language will better help you acquire that language. Unfortunately I am not the most creative person, especially when developing humorous story lines so this activity was a bit challenging for me. However, I think assigning an activity like this to a younger class would be highly effective because their creativity is more expansive compared to an adults. 

This activity would fulfill NYS ESL2: Language for Literary Response and Expression. Using the comic strip would be a means of self-expression where students could show their humor and insight while developing their understanding of the English language. Students would be assessed based on proper English use to convey a deeper meaning or concept that they have been learning.

  1. Nice use of the strip generator, but remember that the strips do not have to be funny. You can use them for simple conversation practice.
