Students of the Austintown 7th grade STEM classes were required to write a comic strip on the tales of Marc Anthony, Cleopatra, Octavian, and Julius Caesar. The tales of this bunch were misinterpreted into a factual, but comical and funny story. With the common use of modern day slang, such as “Oh no she didn’t” and what not. The STEM student made the strips as appealing as possible. The strips also contained quotes, history, and facts of the adventures Of Cleopatra and Marc Anthony. Including dates (Time), places, and all that other good juicy History stuff.
The strips were colored to appeal to the eye, and the authors of these comic strips
made sure that they could easily be mistaken with a strip out of your Sunday paper! And let me tell you, they could be! The comic strips also had to include a short, factual summary. Of course this part was not as enjoyed, but the summaries were very Historically correct, and were very well done. The Comic strips were a huge success and exciting experience for us students, and I believe you, the reader, would enjoy them too!
