Looking for an alternative to the standard book report to get students more invested in the stories that they are reading? Try this lesson provided by Lisa Storm Fink, the Project Manager for ReadWriteThink. In this lesson, students use a six-paneled comic strip to create a story map, summarizing a book or short story that they’ve read. The story strips that result provide a great way to evaluate student’s understanding of important events and elements in a novel.
A full lesson plan and the CCS that are fulfilled by the project can be found here.
