Cartoons, Comics, and Funnies

Students research the history of comics, to address some aspect of their life in the form of a cosmic strip or book. They are each assigned a comic book to research on the Internet. Students are asked what kinds of events could be illustrated in comic book fashion? They are also assigned a series of events or a piece of literature from their time period. Students are challenged to create a comic strip or book that illustrates the events or a portion of the plot in comic book genre.
