STUDENTS TURN THE ALCHEMIST INTO COMIC STRIP GOLD

Time to get creative! Students in Le'Evelyn Hammett's English 7 class created comics illustrating what they had read so far in Paulo Coelho's epic The Alchemist.
 
"They had to summarize their reading into five major events," Le'Evelyn says. "They drew images representing those five major events and then selected quotes that supported their image."
 
The story of Santiago's adventures journeying from Spain to Egypt in pursuit of treasure and his Personal Legend came alive a second time for students as they put their summarizing, storyboarding, and drawing skills to work!
