Today students had time to continue working on their graphic novel reviews and their poems. Homework for tonight was to make a comic based on one of the works of literature that we have read this year. Here are those instructions:

Draw a comic about one of the works of literature we have read this year. Your comic must include:

  • Frames of different sizes and gutters
  • A shift in perspective (not the same scene in every panel)
  • One of the following: captions or sound effects

Your comic will be graded on:

  • Humor: Is there a punchline?
  • Relevance to the literary work
  • Detail and development (you don’t have to be a great artist, but you do need to elaborate and make an effort, just as you do when writing)

English 1 Pre-AP Works (So Far):

  • The Hunger Games
  • The Most Dangerous Game
  • The Cask of Amontillado
  • St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves
  • The Pearl
  • Malcolm Gladwell books
  • The Odyssey
  • The Count of Monte Cristo
  • In Cold Blood
  • The Glass Castle
