Remember when you were a student and one of your teachers used a Calvin & Hobbes cartoon, or even Charlie Brown in their hand-outs? I always loved that idea. I had a teacher who always included a cartoon at the end of their science tests, so when you finally finished you knew there would at least be something to look forward to.
Thanks to Mister Teacher for pointing us to this amazing resource: Comics in the Classroom: 100 Tips, Tools and Resources for Teachers.
My favourite in the list is Pixton - students can create their own comic strips using this online tool. I can see it being used in all subject areas, and the students will certainly enjoy it.
What about you? Do you use comics in your teaching? Would you?
