The “sister site,” Bill’z Treasure Chest, provides more activities for recording personal histories, diaries, and stories.
I found Make Beliefs Comix through the Google supported Literacy Project site which I found through CAST, the Center for Applied Special Technology. I learned about CAST from a LinkedIn discussion group sponsored by the National Science Foundation. In the discussion on software for K16 grades, Tobias McElheny from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics recommended CAST.
CAST provides items of interest to students, teachers, parents, and guardians to help in the different ways of learning. This brings me back to my topic of Make-your-own Comic Strip. In the Strategy Tutor Teacher Website you can use their tools to make lesson plans from on line content. A data base contains a variety of lesson plans including a make-your-own Charlotte’s Web comic strip.
CAST is a nonprofit research and development organization that works to expand learning opportunities for all individuals, especially those with disabilities, through Universal Design for Learning.”
I had to try it. Following the lesson plan I would have summarized the story of “Charlotte’s Web.” It’s been a few years since I read the story so I added my Kansas farm roots and closed with The Waltons. Enjoy.
