My newest panel is for San Diego Comic-Con@Home!
Content through Comics: Teaching STEM and Humanities with Graphic Novels
Combining the learning benefits of visualization with the power of storytelling, high-quality graphic novels make both STEM and humanities subjects more accessible and engaging for all students, particularly students who may not see themselves as scientists, engineers, or historians. We'll discuss how the comics medium is perfectly suited to breaking down complex information and making content learning engaging and fun. And with the new emphasis on reading nonfiction, academic vocabulary, and reading in the subject areas, comics are more relevant than ever.
