Talk About Comics

Introduction  ,(p. iv)

Being able to communicate effectively is the goal of every second language learner. Talk About Comics includes 50 reproducible, uncaptioned cartoons. There is an attempt at humor in most of the comics. Some are more serious. Talk About Comics can be used with all age groups and all levels. Talk About Comics is sure to get your students talking and laughing. There is no order the way the cartoons are presented in the book. The cartoons are not graded. There is no real correct method for using the comics. A creative teacher will realize the almost endless possibilities for exploiting these flexible materials.

Here are a few hints:
use an overhead projector and show tranparencies
give each student a photocopy of the cartoon
tell the story (achieved many ways: as a class, in groups or in pairs)
give it a title
discuss the 5 Ws
make lists: words, verbs, nouns, adjectives, phrases, etc.
give characters names
practice pronunciation and/or spelling
discuss moods and feelings of characters
discuss personal responses to the cartoons (e.g. like it or not, similar experiences)
prior to viewing cut out each frame and get students to put the story in proper sequence
give a dictation
do role plays
write a dialogue
write out the story
