Last week I wrote a post about using online comic creator applications to create comic strips based on scenes from Homer’s Odyssey. Today I’ve published a lesson plan based on this idea. This plan explores Epic / Homeric Similes, vivid word choices, and tone in the Odyssey based on Common Core Standards for Literature–Craft and Structure. I tried to keep the lesson basic and easily adaptable, so there is plenty more you could do with these resources but this plan will get you started using online comic creator applications. I hope you will explore the lesson and share your classroom experiences with the Interactive Language Arts community. Check out the new “Epic Comics” lesson in the Lesson Plans section of this blog.
