Workshop Description: Promoting Literacy with Cartoons, Comics and Graphic Novels
Many students prefer to give and receive information through images and others prefer text, but to be truly literate in the 21st century, students must be fluent in both. Learn how to promote literacy and help students build bridges between images and text using cartoons, comics and graphic novels. Practice annotating cartoons and using Comic Life to create your own comics. Participants will receive a NoteShare notebook with activities and resources for further learning.
