Harnessing the Power of Graphic Novels in the Classroom


Thursday, February 8
4:00 PM – 5:15 PM 



Graphic novels (memoirs and nonfiction) and comic books are an integral tool in increasing literacy and engagement in the classroom. Through this webinar, educators will learn the scholarship and research behind the benefits of using comics and graphic novels in the classroom while also gaining access to learning activities and materials to support this work.  Participants will learn about the current research on literacy in social studies and how graphic novels improve literacy, reading comprehension, and engagement. The workshop ends with a walk-through of various activities and books that educators can use in their classrooms. Participants will receive a workshop folder, handouts, and slides at the end of the session. 

This program is suitable for middle school and high school social studies and ELA educators.

Professional Development Hours awarded.
