CBLDF: Equipping Teachers to Defend Comics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

While comics have long been the domain of superheroes, a new generation of comics and comic book readers are arising. With the availability of nonfiction graphic novels about history, science, memoirs, and more, graphic novels are being read by all types of readers in and out of classrooms. But teachers still navigate resistance to the format. Nathan Hale (Nathan Hale's Hazardous Adventures), Thi Bui (The Best We Could Do), Matthew Holm (Babymouse series, Squish), Dr. Meryl Jaffe, Talia Hurwich, and moderator Betsy Gomez (editorial director, CBLDF) discuss the obstacles and challenges teachers continue to face in selecting, using, and defending the use of comics in their classrooms.
