Tip #458


Host a graphic novelist for master classes. Annunciation Orthodox School hosted Nathan Hale to start the kids writing their research papers with story boards and stick figures as step one. It totally pushed the kids beyond the encyclopedia style of writing to tell a story instead – and they loved it! Now, they go back to class to use the storyboards to write the paper that is expected, but with a renewed understanding of the underlying story of history! The teachers, dubious at first, are very excited to see the kids new enthusiasm and understanding.
