PREVIEW TEACH WITH CARTOONS - SCIENCE MADE EASY

It doesn't matter if you're teaching 6th grade science, 7th grade science or 8th grade science, holding the attention of your students is a huge challenge.  While you always get those few who live and breathe science, a large number of students seem to be waiting for the period to end.  Doesn't do a lot for teacher self esteem, let me tell you!  

 

So how do we keep the interest of these tweens and teens who think that the scientific method probably has something to do with cell phones and texting?

 

One thing is for sure, we have to appeal to their interests.  There are always new gadgets, devices and neat tricks.  But what we've discovered is that one thing that stands the test of time is comics.  It doesn't seem to matter how young you are, or how old you get, reading funny comics appeals to the masses.

 

We took this great fact and used it to our advantage.  Middle school science is now in comics.  Yep, that's right.  And you can view it on the computer - another great passion of middle schoolers.  Not only that, it's engaging and interactive.  Instead of having to purchase dozens of comic books for each student, you simply load the software on any computer, and project it straight on your smart board, screen or white board.  And there you have it!

 

Students love the characters in the software.  There is Dan - the class clown, Kyle - always asking questions and needing repetition, Rachel - the student who loves to learn and the teacher, Miss Stacey who takes it all in her stride and leads the characters through the fascinating world of science. 

 

Teachers don't have to prepare lesson plans because they can simply go through the comic of their topic.  Hot buttons with real life photographs bring science to life, where students can relate it to the real world.  Audio definitions, summaries and related worksheets increase comprehension.  

 

But what about test scores?  It's all very well that students love the comics, but does this give them the information they need to pass their tests?  The answer is a resounding YES!!!  In fact, students have shown to improve their grades dramatically with this system.  There is nothing complicated about this software.  You won't have to read any lengthy manuals and figure out how to use it.  You simply install it, start it up and begin!  Whether you're teaching 6th grade science, 7th grade science or 8th grade science, you'll find that your students begin acing their tests, and look really disappointed when it's time to go to the next period.  That feels really good!  Take it from me!
