Whatcha gonna learn from comics? A lot. And Jerry Steinberg shows you how in this book loaded with ready-to-use ideas for making cartoons and comics an important and successful teaching resource in English as a foreign language classrooms. In addition to dozens of suggestions for using commercial comics, Whatcha Gonna Learn from Comics? also includes original cartoons by Ambre Hamilton. These witty and delightful drawings, ideal for making into overhead transparencies or for use as blackline masters, can be reproduced to illustrate hard-to-grasp concepts such as puns, acronyms and gambits. The first 48 pages of the book are support materials for the teacher, with suggestions for more than 40 activities ranging from creative writing and poetry to role-playing and trivial pursuits. Each of the cartoons in the book are then miniaturised and related to the issues of linguistic, cultural and social concepts, with the topics covered here ranging from accents to oral composition, gestures, jargon, vernacular pronunciation and idiomatic expressions. The final 70 pages of the book consist of the enlarged cartoons which are fully photocopiable for student use -- and enjoyment. This is a book of incredible richness and diversity that your students will just love!
