Instructional Ideas

  1. Teachers can have students read a chapter or a certain amount of frames in a chapter. Next, students can write a summary of the chapter or frames they read. Teachers can also have students compose review questions about the chapter or frames they read. Students can post their review questions to a class website so classmates may respond, or students can email their questions to their teacher. Teachers can use these review questions to create a quiz.
  2. After 5-10 frames, teachers can pause students and have them write a prediction about what they think is going to happen in the next 5-10 frames. Teachers can call on students to share their predictions, and then teachers can have students read the frames to evaluate whether their prediction was or was not correct.
  3. Teachers can have students read a chapter and then compose an animated alternative ending for the chapter. Students can create their chapters using paper-and-pencil or a movie maker app such as Educreations, Adobe Voice, or Stop Motion Studio. Teachers can have students post links to their movie on a class website or have students play their movies for their classmates by connecting their iPad to a projector.
  4. After reading a chapter, teachers can lead a class conversation. Example questions teachers can use are: What did you like or not like about the chapter?, what would you change about the chapter?, and how could you make the exact opposite of what happened in the chapter happen?
