Our last activity with the short story unit is to take one of the short stories from your anthology that we have not read as a class and turn it into a comic book. One of the tools we will be looking at is Bitstrips, but you may generate the comic book in any form you think is appropriate (and up to your artistic abilities). The rubric for this assignment can be found here.
This assignment is to be completed with a partner (try to pick someone who compliments both your learning style and your abilities (ie. they work as hard as you do, but while you have strong language skills they are a better artist).
This wiki has some good ideas to get you started.
