(TP22) Analyzing (Sequential) Art – Teaching Teachers to See Within and Between the Panels

Room 303 - Education

Sunday July 2, 2017 - 11:30 am to 12:20 pm

In his seminal study of sequential art (comics), Understanding Comics Scott McCloud emphasizes the importance of what happens both within the panels and between them. That which we see in a comic is just as important as what is implied to have transpired when the image changes. This workshop/panel will explore how educators can effectively interpret and analyze the comic form and offer strategies on how to impart this to their students as a potential scaffolding device that can enhance student understanding of more traditional chapter based texts.
