Reading with Comics (for National Comic Book Day)


Somewhere, I read that today’s is National Comic Day. I don’t know what that really means. But I thought I would share this video talk from Josh Elder about using Comics for reading instruction, and the relationship between the writer and the reader when it comes to comics. Elder is also a leader of Reading with Pictures, which is publishing an interesting anthology of writers remembering how they began to learn to read with comics.

“With a comic, the moment you open it up, you’re in that story … you’re in that world.” — Elder.

Peace (in the frames),
Kevin
