Day 2: Mini Lesson -Students Research Comic Adventure
Assign each group an adventure comic strip. Each group can use the provided link and search for other sites. In their Keynote presentation, they will include information about the comic, graphics, and date of creation.
Give plenty of time for each group to present their information
on the time line and the comic assigned to them. After processing
all of the group information, students should have a increased
awareness of the history of American newspaper adventure comic
Explain that they will be choosing a political or a social issue that they feel strongly about and will imagine how Capt'n Eli would react to that issue. Brainstorm situations where Capt'n Eli overcame adversity while assisting others in need. This will help them review qualities of Eli as an adventure hero.
Have students list 10 political or social issues and explain why they are important to them. If students have the program Noteshare, they should set up a Notebook for this Art/writing project and include the list of issues in one of the Sections.
