Comic Books in the Classroom:
Comic Book Resources for New & Emerging Teaching Professionals
with guest SCOTT MEUNIER
An Evening for Educators
We've invited Scott Meunier to come in and lead discussions on specific ways to use graphic novels in the classroom! Scott enjoys helping teachers achieve what they hope to do with students in their classrooms. This workshop will invite participants to generate questions and explore innovative ways of using graphic lit resources. There will also be strategies and take-aways for new and emerging teachers to use for their own (and students') reflective practices regarding what happens in classrooms. While this panel is focused on the new teacher, experienced teachers and education students are also welcome to take part. The more creative minds to delve into this topic, the better!
Scott has provided a link to a survey he would like attendees to take so he can gear his talk appropriately:

As the role of comic books and graphic novels in the classroom and beyond continues to gain the support of educators around the world, the space reserved for them in libraries and schools grows; but no two educational environments are alike, and it can be difficult to assess which materials will best fill those spaces. Happy Harbor can help navigate the world of sequential storytelling. We know you want comics in your classrooms and libraries. We also know there’s a lot of comics out there and finding the right books can be very intimidating. To help combat these issues, Happy Harbor wants to give you the opportunity to learn more, be entertained, and even get some personalized shopping done.
Between Language Arts and Visual Arts, there are the Sequential Arts.
Happy Harbor encourages you to please drink responsibly.
