Class of the Week: Barb Morris’ Grade 6/7s

Teacher Barb Morris of Gracefield Public School and her students have had great success using Bitstrips to illustrate scientific principles.  Here’s what Barb has to say:

Tell us about your students’ reaction to Bitstrips for Schools.
Extremely excited and motivated.

Your students have made tons of Bitstrips! What kind of stuff have they been about?
Started out getting familiar with the program (family potrait, speech bubble lessons)  and then I created my own assessments based on learning in the grade 6/7 science classes. (Thermal Energy)

Did you learn anything new about your students through their comics?
Students that normally struggle to answer questions orally or in writing found this format helpful.   They were able to express their understanding through using Bitstrips.

What advice do you have for other teachers on getting the most out of Bitstrips for Schools?
Don’t let the students drift on the program.  Give them a focus and take advantage of the posted assignments.  Also, make your own assignments.  It’s really fun and easy to do.

Examples of her students’ work:

  1. hi,

    i really like the the comic that studends make
    i am in grade 7 in camilla could you send me a video of bitstips like how to use it i want it to make a ism RACISM my teacher will mark me on this
    so if you can make it verry verry thank you

    thank you again

    • I am not sure about how to create a video of how to use bitstrips. Once you get started, its pretty easy though. Might I suggest that for a comic strip about racism that you create 2 groups of alien creatures with obvious difference (ie. green hair and purple ears). Place them in a conflict situation where they eventually start name-calling. This should send the message that racism is ridiculous but more importantly also hurtful for those experiencing it. Hope this helps. Good Luck, Mrs. Morris
