Comics collected: 29
Student efficiency: 4.14
Maximum possible: 35
Lesson efficiency: 0.83
Unlike the 9/10 session, the kids stayed through the lesson and finished it, thanks to decreasing the warm-up time. So I'm getting better at managing time with this group.

The attendance for the activities is definitely increasing. I have three regulars who really seem to enjoy it, while the others were new this time. I'm hoping I can get a small but dedicated group going. Video and pictures will be posted later.

Comics Collected: 35
Student efficiency: 5.83
Max possible produced: 48
Lesson efficiency: 0.73
One reason for the lower number than with 9/3 was a reduced number of double template comics. Also, while most of the kids completed the warm-up, several of them had to leave before the lesson portion.

(Now I just need to find time and make templates of all the new comics that signed up. Eee...)

In addition to the special guest template by Ryan Estrada, there's also a new press release to celebrate the next CCP comic book:
John Baird and Ryan Estrada have teamed up to release Create a Comic Project Presents: Climate Change. The 34-page comic book, which explores the various facets of climate change, is published through Lulu.com.
The comic is the first issue in the Create a Comic Project's Presents line, which seeks to use comics to educate kids about various subjects, such as public health, government, and economics. Climate change was chosen as the first topic to coincide with yearlong efforts by the Association of Schools of Public Health (ASPH) to raise public awareness of the issue.
"[The ASPH] is very excited about this project," said Laura Biesiadecki, Senior Program Manager of the ASPH.
John Baird's narrative explores climate change in both its historical and modern day contexts, going through how the Earth's temperatures change, what greenhouse gases are, and why burning oil could be exacerbating the process. It also covers how scientists study climate change and several of the recent developments. As an added bonus, text free versions of every page are included in the comic to allow kids to create their own climate change tale.
"Why did I announce this comic book on Estrada Day?" said writer John Baird. "Because I wanted to be among the first to blatantly commercialize the holiday. Remember, only 365 days until the next Estrada Day!"

Max possible produced: 30
Lesson efficiency: 1.10
So despite the low turn out, the 3 students who did participate really got into it. Hopefully that's indicative of the overall interest the children will show over the course of the year.

I'm currently going through some computer problems, so stats from 9/3 and 9/10, as well as the images and videos, will be delayed.

SInce there were only 3 students, not many comics were collected. I'll have exact numbers soon. For 9/10, I'll reuse a lot of the material I had for this one. I'll post the pictures and video later.
