This coming weekend is the New York Comicon and Jessica and I will be doing a talk/workshop on Friday. We’ll be talking about using comics in a variety of different classroom settings. If you’re a teacher who’s interested in incorporating comics into your classes at whatever level I encourage you to drop in. Here’s the description from the program schedule:
Friday, 2-3 PM, Room 1A23
Jessica Abel and Matt Madden, instructors at the School of Visual Arts and creators of the comic textbook Drawing Words & Writing Pictures, talk about how to use comics in the classroom in this presentation aimed at English and Art teachers. Discussing techniques for reading and analyzing comics as well as creating them, Jessica and Matt will lead teachers to a better understanding of the comic medium that will empower them to make use of comics in new and exciting ways.
At 3:15 we’ll be signing books at the First Second booth.
