Creating comics is powerful teaching tool that sparks interests with struggling readers, writers, and creative visual artists. Discover the engaging pedagogical super power that an innovative comic creation and publication curriculum provides as repellent to any dull art studio kryptonite. Participants will be introduced to one of the best comprehensive storytelling curricula, Pop Culture Classroom “Storytelling Through Comics,” and Fable Visions online publishing tool, “Get Published” which features resources from New York Times best seller, Peter Reynolds, author of “The Dot and ish”. By blending these two powerful resources, participants will focus on how to apply, produce and publish collaboratively created comics in their common core art studio classes.
Participants will come away with hands-on creative ready-to-use comic lessons, assessment tools, rubrics, comic vocabulary, character development, creative story ideas, art studio activities, online resources and ideas for developing a one of a kind published, collaboratively created comic book. Text cost is $50 for Pop Culture Classroom “Storytelling Through Comics” plus $25 annual access for Fable Visions “Get Published”. (Please Note: Request the "Get Published" resource from your instructor at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
