Cartoonist and teaching artist extraordinaire, Jerzy Drozd, provides a step-by-step walkthrough of his workshop exploring the convergence of literary and artistic disciplines inherent in comics, and demonstrating how both making and reading comics can be a powerful way to build reading comprehension skills such as prediction, inference, and fluency. Workshop participants will experience: 1. ways to introduce cartooning/visual storytelling strategies to students, 2. suggestions for coaching students to express character, plot, and drama through images, 3. how comics can be used to invite prediction, inference, and foster fluency in a student’s reading, and 4. cartooning strategies to teach to different kinds of learners. You can see videos of many of Jerzy's outstanding workshops here.
