We read about Wonder Woman in our Junior Scholastic Magazine last week and started creating our super heroes.  We will be using these characters in a comic book that we create. Students first need to create a story board/rough draft on printer paper of their comic to figure out their pacing .  This is really only for the writing and framing pieces, the artwork in the rough draft should only be for basic shapes. The artwork will be in the final draft.  Once their rough draft is complete, they will get the sheets to create the final draft.  The final draft should be a comprehensible story told with color, neat, best effort, high quality (drawings to your best effort, proofread, proper grammar, etc.).  Remember that we talked about stick figures or modified stick figures being allowed as long as they are best effort. We also talked about remembering that you will need to draw your character multiple times so they should not be too elaborate. We will then share our comics when we are done, roughly around the second week in May.     

Students are welcome to bring in their own comic books to show us examples of different artwork, framing, speech bubbles, etc. during the duration of this project. 

Remember we have another round of testing later this month.  The schedule is posted on the Middle school calendar as well as in the Star News.

We will also be working on some poetry on Wednesdays.
