Comment: The site provides a great learning opportunity for students to practice using voice (a component of the 6+1 Writing Traits). It provides students with the opportunity to write a comic that has characters, emotion, and speech bubbles. It also fosters organization in student writing. I think it is a great tool for students to have fun while writing! I love that the end product can be printed and/or e-mailed.

Technical Remarks:

Technically, I think the program is solid. I do wish that there were voice overs on the directions so that younger students could benefit from this great tool too.
