App Description

Includes three free demos! Comics in the Classroom is a revolutionary and exciting way to learn about History’s key figures and events. These may be comics, but they’re not like any you’ve seen before. You don’t just see how things unfold - you get involved! First, hear how it happened. Then see the stunning comic images bring it to life - but what goes in the bubbles is down to you. Find the right words and unlock your understanding!

Hear how the famous events of history unfold with our literacy-boosting read-along feature. Written by the author of several of Britain’s most popular Secondary School History text books, it will equip you with all you need for the comic challenges ahead.

Quickly progress to the stunning visuals of the comic and start putting your new-found knowledge to use.

Double tap on the first panel to zoom in. Then tap the empty bubbles, review your options and make your choice.

Swipe to the next panel and once all four action-packed pages have been completed and the story has reached its climax, discover how historically accurate you’ve been. Are you going to be judged an historical authority? Or are there still gaps in your knowledge to fill?
