The purpose of this study is to motivate early adolescents to teach Korean writing with fun proposing the method applied cartoon to lesson.
I grasp cartoon is to communicate with drawing and writing and to express story and message freely and aggressively with simplification and exaggeration of shape on purpose. I suppose teaching plans of Korean writing applied cartoon along the merits of cartoon and I look into two kinds of writing strategies applied picture and the other language skills.
Writing strategy applied picture is to describe characters, describe situation and complete word balloon with guessing the pictures. Writing strategy with the other language is through reading, listening and speaking. Writing activities through reading is to complete word balloon, make next story, write a letter to characters, write topic, arrange stories, change cartoon into stories, make role play scripts and summarize cartoon. Writing activities through listening is to dictate, complete word balloon after listening, arrange stories and complete word balloon after listening. And writing activities through speaking is to do role play after completing scripts. I motivate learners who think writing is difficult and just an assignment to improve writing skill with natural and profound writing activities.
I expect next things through cartoon method in Korean writing class. First, cartoon can motivate learners to write with fun. Second, cartoon can make learner use experienced topic and give learners less anxiety by the writing activities along the appropriate level. Third, cartoon can raise learners' imagination through a wide range of topics and new and various writing activities. Fourth, cartoon can improve communicative skill by connecting with the other language skills. (Sunmoon University)
