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.
