Peter Carlson (Green Dot Public Schools), Susan Kirtley (Portland State University), and Antero Garcia (Stanford University) lead this hands-on workshop for integrating comic books in your classrooms. Using contexts from K–12 to higher education instruction and communities of comic scholars, this action-packed workshop guides participants through approaches to teaching comics and teaching with comics while including the voices of Nhora Lucia Serrano (MIT Press), Johnathan Flowers (Southern Illinois University), and Ben Bolling (University of North Carolina) to share key strategies, theories, and scholarship on comics pedagogy.
This program kicks off our 3rd annual Comic Conference for Educators and Librarians (CCEL). Comic-Con International and San Diego Public Library have teamed up once again for this FREE five-day conference, which takes place during Comic-Con from July 18 - 22 at the Central Library. Through presentations and panel discussions, CCEL explores the role comics play in promoting education, engagement, and literacy for all ages. Library professionals and educators are invited to learn creative and exciting ways to incorporate comics and graphic novels into their work.
CCEL is free to attend, but space is limited and registration is required for each day.
Comic-Con badge-holders with valid single same-day or four-day badges are welcome to attend and are not required to register.
