Occasionally we receive requests from various kinds of organizations
asking us to disseminate information about them to our members. In the past, we
have generally published such information only when a FLAME member has made a
recommendation. At the FLAME Board meeting that took place on Jan. 17, 2007, it
was decided to create a special page devoted to information that is potentially
of interest to our members--with the understanding that this does not constitute
an endorsement by the FLAME Advisory Board.

This web site --
-- allows children and adults to create their own comic strips. They can select from 15 fun characters
with different moods -- happy, sad, angry, worried – and write words for
blank talk and thought balloons to make their characters talk and think.
There also are story ideas and prompts to help users create graphic stories.
This site can be used by educators to teach language, reading and writing
skills, and also for students in English-as-a-Second-Language programs to
facilitate self-expression and storytelling, as well as computer literacy.
It is now being used in 160 countries by educators. Some educational
therapists use it with deaf and autistic people to help them understand
concepts and communicate. Parents and children can create stories together,
print them to create comic books or email them to friends and family.
Others will find the site a resource to be creative, calm down and have fun.
Because so many Spanish-speaking users asked us for the ability to write
their cartoons in Spanish as well as in English, we recently upgraded the
site to accept words written in Spanish, including appropriate accent marks.
This can be a useful tool for someone who is learning Spanish as well as
someone whose first language is Spanish. This feature is being expanded to
other languages, such as French, Italian and German.
I am hoping that you will share
http://www.makebeliefscomix.com with your colleagues, teachers,
students or readers of your publications and resource lists. The site is
free with no advertising. Any help you might offer in getting word out
about this project is very appreciated.
If you can suggest other people or groups whom I might contact to make
them aware of the site please send me their names, email addresses or phone
numbers. Any list-servs I might join? Relevant Internet resource sharing
groups would be helpful, too. It takes a community to build a useful
resource like this one.
As one who learned to read with comic books, I know that creating comic
strips can help people tap into their creativity and practice their language
and storytelling skills. The site is free and stems from my lifelong
mission to create resources that help people find their voice and express
themselves. The concept for makebeliefscomix.com is derived from my
earlier books, Make Beliefs and Make Beliefs for Kids of All Ages (which can
be found on my other web site:
http://www.billztreasurechest.com). A Make Beliefs interactive feature
appeared for 13 years on my syndicated Student Briefing Page for Newsday,
and in National Geographic’s World Magazine.
