Makebeliefscomix

Makebeliefscomix.com is a website for creating comic strips.  I’ve used it to create short dialogue-based readings and as a student activity.  It was a homework option for one of the quarters this year.  We used it today in Spanish 2.  The best part about the site is the simplicity.  Minutes after I turned them loose, students were creating.  There was very little time wasted on technical issues or learning how the program worked.

Because comic strips are typically heavy on dialogue and light on narration, I provided students with a list of some of the conversational structures we’ve seen and required that they use at least 5.

This is a great substitute activity.  Here are a couple examples.  Not perfect but fun.
