Take notice, dear educators. This week we have our first ever student review of a comic. Christian has picked a good one, choosing a Mayan myth for his first venture. I'm thinking a review of a comic, and not just a book report, would make a fun and interesting culminating activity to demonstrate one's learning. Don't you think?

We could encourage our students to pose and answer big questions and contemplate how the comic of their choice relates to real life or connects to other things they know or have experienced. There is ample opportunity for students to really connect the dots and use those higher order thinking skills.

I'm hoping this isn't our last student review. I'd love to see more. If you don't mind, leave a positive little note for Christian in the comments section. I'm sure he would appreciate it.
