Comic Creator The Comic Creator invites students to compose their own comic strips for a variety of contexts (prewriting, pre- and postreading activities, response to literature, and so on). The organizers focus on the key elements of comic strips by allowing students to choose backgrounds, characters, and props, as well as to compose related dialogue (shown at left). This versatile tool can be used by students from kindergarten through high school, for purposes ranging from learning to write dialogue to an in-depth study of a formerly neglected genre. The tool is easy to use, made even easier with the Comic Strip Planning Sheet, a printable PDF that comic creators can use to draft and revise their work before creating and printing their final comics. After completing their comic, students have the ability to print out and illustrate their final versions for feedback and assessment. Grades K – 3 | Lesson Plan | Standard Lesson

The bill is "officially" designed to help American media companies (Disney, NBC/Universal, etc) try to stop piracy on foreign websites (like, say, the Pirate Bay). But "unofficially" the bill introduces VERY scary control features similar to what China, Iran, and Syria use to patrol/control their citizens. It also proposes some very unsmart things that can literally break how the internet works.
