Reading With Pictures, the most trusted source for knowledge about the impact of comics and graphic novels for empowerment, learning, and lifelong joy, presents TEACHING WITH COMICS, a FREE three-day professional development event for the comics curious and manga masters — and everyone in between! Join us August 9-11, 2021!
Equip your teaching toolbox with resources, printable posters, and lesson plans to integrate comic books, graphic novels, manga, political cartoons — and so much more! — into your instruction next school year.
We are proud to feature two distinguished keynote speakers. Educator, poet, activist, and comic creator Dr. Lee Francis IV will speak live on August 9, and on August 10, hear from educator, artist, and cartoonist Cara Bean. (embed: https://www.carabeancomics.com/ )
