Peter Carlson (Green Dot Public Schools) and Susan Kirtley (Portland State University) lead this hands-on workshop designed for educators looking to integrate comics into classrooms. This workshop guides participants through activities that model how to develop superhero readers and writers in classrooms through the implementation of a critical comics pedagogy and includes the incredible voices of Ebony Flowers (Hot Comb), David F. Walker (Solid Comix), Chanti Burnette (Animo South Los Angeles High School), and Samantha Diego (UCLA). Workshop materials will be provided and everyone is welcome
This program kicks off our 4th 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 17 - 21 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.
