Be on the lookout
For humorous comic strips that are related to your training topic/clip them from daily newspaper, etc.
Enlarge the strips and place them onto "VISUAL SPICER" (see activity sheets) or OHP transparencies.
When doing your presentations, get your participants comments on
how the strip is related to your point.
What else? The sky is the limit...
These are just few ideas to stimulate your creative understanding of comics you will now hopefully read comics in a different way,
Could you help communities develop comics depicting their
own story (see the activity sheet on CASE STUDIES)? These will help communities
become aware of their current situation awareness leads to under-stamping, and
understanding leads to action.
