ToonDoo and Your Students

Sample Lesson with ToonDoo

Here we’re providing a sample lesson plan that you can use to introduce your students to ToonDoo.   It includes much of the basic information included in this Teacher’s Guide along with an easy assignment for students to get familiar with the software.  The basic idea is for students to create same cartoon that you see in the teachers guide and then to modify it in whatever way they wish. The goal is to create an original cartoon that uses as many of the tools as they can while maintaining the same basic concept; an introduction to ToonDoo.  Feel free to modify the plan to best fit your needs.

Evaluating Student Cartoons

There are a number of ways to evaluate student cartoons.  Provided below is an example rubric you can use to evaluate ToonDoos that discuss a science topic.  A Word version of this rubric is also provided (rubric-doc) so you can modify it to fit your lessons and print it out as needed.
