Come on down to Gardner's Book Service this Saturday, September 10th for a free professional development workshop featuring the use of comics in the classroom. I will discuss what makes comics a unique medium, how to address common challenges, ways to incorporate these texts into the different content areas, and strategies for helping students engage with these texts.
There will be a hands-on aspect to this workshop, so be prepared to practice the different strategies I have used in my own classroom. I will model the strategies so you can see them in action and have the opportunity to ask questions.
Teachers who attend will receive a collection of resources including book lists, strategy guides, sample work, and handouts.
