Toon Doo is a cool website where students can create their own comic strips and books. They can create characters and drag and drop objects/speech bubbles into the comic strip. This can be applied in several ways to teaching reading and writing.

One way is to teach summarizing and test reading comprehension. Have students read a passage and then summarize it in a comic strip. This would also test what they understood and took away from the passage.

Another way is creative writing through the comic strip. Students can create their own stories based on specific prompts. For example, if the lesson is on symbolism, similes, and metaphors, students would have to include those in their comic strip and its dialogue and descriptions.
