This talk will explore a variety of methods that teachers can use to engage effectively with comics in the classroom. We will begin by exploring the foundational elements of comics art, paying particular attention to the interaction of word-based and visual modes of communication. We will also discuss how the experimental ethos of comics can influence classroom practice in a similarly experimental fashion. Introducing suitable examples for high school students, the audience will then have the chance to read and collaboratively interpret a small selection of comics texts.
