Some more...
More materials for making / using comics
I'm actually going to be teaching a few lessons on ONLINE tools that children can use.
They are, in order of difficulty:
1. www.stripgenerator.com
2. www.comiqs.com
3. www.goanimate.com
I checked out stripgenerator, and it was fun! Very easy to produce a groan comic:

Who are you teaching, Elias, students or teachers? I just saw a good slideshow with ideas of how to use comic generators in the classroom and posted it in the other discussion.

Larry Ferlasso also has a "best of" list for comic generators, but it's a bit over a year old... I can't tell if he's updated it (he does mention comiqs... their server is experiencing an error at the moment)

That "100 Tips" list looks interesting too, David... and it's recent, July 2009. Which does make the point that's it's hard to tell when these things are updated (noting May 1, 2008 date of this discussion's original posting)

So much to choose from!
Wow Ellen. That's a great list. I teach Elementary school children and was going to use those three that I mentioned for my winter camp but because of comiqs.com's problem I'll probably be using one of the sites from Larry Ferlasso's site. Thanks for that link. :)
Where are you teaching?
Hey Elias, I am an elementary teacher too! Portland, OR... nothing as exotic as teaching EFL :D
Here is a nice comic lesson plan. Students fill in the blank bubbles to make the story. Also, more templates!
THIS SITE - Learninglaffs, has some comics that if you click "print view" can easily be printed and then using white out, made to be blank bubbles for use in class.

Here are some interesting examples a teacher in Japan had his student do, using the same method.

Here are some emoticons that might be used to make comics!

These are some comics I have been tinkering with.
I will probably fit them into our camp. Calvin and Hobbes and Snoopy are there.

Here are a few more basic templates for cartoon drawing/story building in the classroom.


Also, get some handy pdfs HERE.(just blanks).


Grammarman has made a terrific comic adaptation of Romeo and Juliet. Great stuff for teaching and big hat tip to member,  Michael Stout's blog for this.
