Beyond the Bubbles: Critical Thinking & ESL Through Comics Creation

Session 5
Jacqueline Gardy, Dan Ryder — Jacquie: Content Development Editor, Innovations Team, U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, Office of English Language Programs; Dan: Director of the Success & Innovation Center, Mt. Blue High School, Farmington, Maine

The presenters have created a media-rich resource manual for this purpose, serving as an essential toolkit for TESOL educators and field practitioners to assist students in creating their own comic books for learning and promoting English language learning through visual literacy.

Conversational Practice

During this conversational practice, participants will explore four ways students might product comics through a variety of different materials and media to demonstrate deeper learning and understanding. Participants will leave with experience creating comics of their own, as well as having discussed the power of comics creation as tools for deeper understanding and equity in all learning environments — with particular value for ESL spaces.
