My grade 8s chose a chapter from the novel to summarise in comic strip form. This assignment required them to review the chapter, identify the important events, create a “shot” list of images and scenes, and pull dialogue to quote in their comics. I gave students part of a period to work on their comics, but many wanted to spend more time on them, so they took them home to work on over the weekend.

These are some of the ones they created:
