Like last year, Peter Carlson and I will be presenting at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. If you’re going to San Diego next week, come join us on Thursday in room 26AB at 2:30 for our presentation, “Teaching Critical Comics in an Era of Standardization and the Common Core: The Pragmatics of a Transformative Pedagogy.”
This presentation expands on the introductory work we shared last year to focus on the pragmatics of critical pedagogy and comic books in classrooms today. This will be a 50-minute hands-on presentation, so we encourage teachers to bring and share ideas throughout.
(And yes, our presentation mashes up Shakespeare quotes and Extreme. It’s that awesome.)
