Comic strips are a series of adjacently drawn images that are arranged in a horizontal orientation. They include a section for accompanying dialogue that allow it to be read as a narrative. The series of panels makes a complete story. Traditionally the stories unfold a humorous narrative, but they have also been known to serve a serious purpose as well. Comic strips engage readers in an immersive form of media because the narrative is being conveyed in writing and visuals. While caricatures of this kind have been used for over 500 years, the concept really gripped American culture in the early 1900s. This series of worksheets will encourage students to write their own comic strips and immerse themselves in telling visual narratives.
