TEACHING WITH CARTOONS
I frequently use cartoons as part of my lessons. The students love it when I get out the cartoons. I have used them to illustrate idioms, sarcasm, hyperbole, inferences, and different elements of writing.
I always read the comic section of the newspaper to check for ones I can use in the classroom, even when I travel or visit my parents. I especially enjoy when a series of strips deals with the same topic.
Below is a list of comics that contain language arts related strips quite often. If you have others to suggest, click on the SUBMIT butterfly below.
