In recent years, there has been a growing awareness across a number of diverse fields, including education, that comics can offer multiple opportunities for sophisticated and impassioned literary engagement, for readers of all abilities, ages, and persuasions. Following this enthusiasm for the productive possibilities of such texts, this presentation will focus on the uses of comics and graphic novels in the secondary English Language Arts classroom, with particular attention paid to the Alberta curriculum. Participants will be introduced to a number of age-appropriate graphic novels and teaching strategies, as well as ways to encourage students in the creation of their own comics texts.
