En el restaurante comic strips

We’ve taken the language out of a few authentic comic strips and used them as a writing assessment for students for students to write the dialogue of ordering at a restaurant.

Take this Condorito comic:

and then have students write their own dialogue:restaurant blank
or check out this edited version with more space to write.

You can also use the original comic as an interpretive reading activity.

Or take this comic from Baldo:


and when you take out the text students can write their own dialogue. Or you can give them prompts of what to write in each box as shown below.restaurante_baldo_blank
Box 1: Asks for order
Box 2: States their order
Box 3: States order and gives reason
Box 4: Anything else, Offers something
Box 6: Will you bring me…

Here’s a Garfield comic:
where perhaps they are commenting on food or asking what the other is going to order.
Or this version where they might be commenting on the food.

Looking for a ready to use prompt with a rubric? We’ve got it ready for you:
