Project: COMICS

A colleague of mine, Flavia, devised a very nice project she developed with her EFL students in Brazil (11- 12 year-old students) who are beginning to learn English.

At the end of every class, she let her students in pairs or groups of 3, work on a comic story they were creating throughout the semester. Each story had 18 images with dialogues.

Now, at the end of the semester, she had students practise the dialogues and then recorded them. My contribution? Well, I just cut out the images and synchronized them all with windows movie maker. So as you can see, it was a project carried out slowly where students were able to use the language they had just learned. Congratulations to Flavia and her students.

Flavia and Ana,

I loved the project. and so easy to carry out. You know this year it is very difficult to work with students and Internet as it isn't working in any of them. This could be done without it. Your blog is always a source of inspiration.

Congratulations to the teachers and the students!!!

Gabriela
